The finger weeder is designed to remove weeds up to the edge and into the middle of the plant row without damaging to stem of the plants that are being weeded. In this way, the area which is normally not touched by a mechanical hoe, is now reached and weeded as well. The finger weeder can be used independently or in combination with other machines, for example a cultivator.The cultivators used with sweeps shovels, crumble roller and the Kress finger weeder makes easy work out of field weeding.
