Dear Sir,

The manual operated dry land weeders are not suitable for use in vast areas, hard soil and where there is huge weed growth. I recommend you to go for self propelled mini weeding machines (5 to 7 HP, Petrol / diesel, ploughing width 1.5' to 2') that can be operated in even 2.5' narrow rows of plants. LINK 1, Link 2. and Link 4, Link 5

You can select 'Brush cutters' (Petrol driven, 0.5 to 1HP)If the soil is very hard and where ploughing is not necessary
See LINK 3 and Link 4.

I have given you some references (companies) links for reference only and I am not promoting them. There are many companies like HONDA, Yamaha Etc supplying various ranges of Brush cutters.

Thanking you,

Yours friendly,

Dear friend,

The manually operated single row Cono weeder can be fabricated at your town itself. Double row cono weeders are also available that should be pushed from behind by one person and pulled forward using ropes in front by one person.

They are very cheap and easy to fabricate.

Thanking you,

Yours friendly,

Dear Friend,

I have attached some photos with some dimensions of the weeders. I know these details will give an idea but not enough to fabricate one. If you want to buy from India there are hundreds companies manufacturing them and I suggest you to visit this link and give the name of the tool and select the company of your choice. For motorized cono-weeder equipment which is getting popular here please click this link.

I am damn sure that manual operated tools are available in your country itself please call 'Paddy research Centre' of your country for more details.

Thanking you,

Yours friendly,
A.Vishnu Sankar
