KSNM - CONO WEEDER FOR PADDY FIELD
Weeding is the process of eliminating competition of wanted plants with the regular crop so that the crop can be grown profitability. Management of weeds is an important component of crop production technique as removal of weeds is expensive and hard to achieve at later stages. Weeds take away nutrients and harbor destructive insects, thus cause reduction in yield.
In the past two decades, work has been done on non-chemical management techniques and environmentally safe alternatives to herbicides for weed control. Mechanical weeding is generally the most economical method of weed control. Using a rotary, mechanical hand weeding machine, wetland weeder, gives best results. Wetland weeders are becoming popular because they are utilized under shallow water conditions. Weeds are uprooted by the teeth of
the weeder and buried in the mud due to its pull and push operations. It is safe and environmental friendly.
Weeding must be done at least 3 times during one season. The weeder has to be used as soon as the weeds germinate. Earlier weeding is easier and it completely destroys weeds while they are very small.
Instructions to use:
Early first weeding is a must. Carryout the weeding within 20 days after sowing.
Late weeding will lead to competition between paddy and weeds, ultimately damaging the paddy.
Push the weeding machine in back and forth movement between rows.
