Soybean were grown under field conditions on chernozem soil for four growing seasons (from 2002 to 2005). Three treatment of soil tillage were applied as follows: a) conventional tillage, b) reduced tillage (diskharrowing instead of ploughing) and c) no-till (zero-tillage). In general, the characteristics of growing season (the factor „year“) were more influencing factor of soybean nutritional status (aerial part in stage of full-developed pods) in comparison with the soil tillage. In our study, low influences of applied soil tillage treatments on nutritional status of soybean were found because significant differences on soybean composition were found only for four (Cu, Cr, Sr and Ba) from total 20 analysed elements. For example, conventional tillage resulted by the higher plant Cu (by 15% and 18% in comparison with DH and NT, respectively), and the lower plant Sr (by 12% and 16%, respectively) and Ba (by 26% and 23%, respectively), while under DH conditions by 22% lower plant Cr was found. Main nutrient status (P. K, Ca, Mg, S...) were independent on soil tillage. For this reason, usual fertilization practice is recommended for possible application of soil tillage reduction under conditions of calcareous chernozem.
