The study investigated fuel consumption in tillage practices and whole ploughing, noploughing and minimum, limited to disking, soil tillage in winter oilseed rape, winter wheat, spring barley, maize and sugar beet depending on their previous crops in the crop rotation. Dates of harvest for each of the five crops were different, which diversified the length of time for sowing successive crop and the number of possible practices in a particular manner of the soil cultivation process. The highest fuel consumption, more than 22 l·ha-1, was recorded during autumn ploughing not preceded by other tillage practice in spring cereals and sugar beet grown in the stand after corn. In the agricultural practices of each plant, with the exception of winter rape in the stand after cereals, ploughing tillage required the largest fuel inputs. Consumption of diesel oil during the preparation of the soil in this manner under sugar beet after winter wheat in the autumn term of manure was 46.2 l·ha-1. The significant reduction in fuel consumption by more than 20 l·ha-1, allows limiting the soil tillage to 1-2 disking, depending on the crop and its previous crop in the crop rotation.
