Abstract:

Weeds are an important factor in the management of all land and water resources, but its effect is greatest on agriculture. It reveals that one third of the cost of cultivation is being spent for weeding alone. Weeding operation is the process of elimination of unwanted plants so that the regular crops can be grown profitably. Weeding is one of the important operations. Various methods are in use for weeding purpose. Availability and quality of matching equipment for small mechanical power sources is a major concerned in general and weeding equipment in particular. The same time farmer has to use different weeders based on crop specification, as on today weeding operation has not been mechanized in almost all the crops. Hence, keeping the above factors in view, an attempt has been made to develop a mini-tractor operated weeding matching tool for weeding operation of multi crop for intensive and commercial farming system in India which can save time as well as money.
