Reduce your impact - Maximize your results
In-row cultivation is a challenging part of any farm operation. Finger weeders make this job easier, by reducing the need for hand hoeing and ensuring small, germinating weeds are tossed out.
How it works:
- The polyurethane fingers turn in between the crop row, driven by the steel fingers, dislodging small weeds.
- Ball-bearing construction ensures trouble free operation.
- Ideal for use in well established brassicas like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage.
- The Finger weeder is suitable for weeding at typical cultivation speeds.
In-row mechanical weeding - Retire the hoe
Research has shown a weed reduction of 60 percent is feasible by using finger weeders. Finger weeders are most effective when stacking with tools that run in front of the fingers such as beet knives and torsion weeders. This percentage could be increased to 90 percent by combining the finger weeder with a torsion weeder.
The finger weeder is available as a whole and in single weeders or single discs. The rubber fingers are available in different hardnesses.
