Tine weeders can be an effective cultivation tool, especially for those looking for increased on-farm efficiency. This tool is intended for use on very small weeds; the smaller they are, the easier they will be to uproot. Cultivation over an existing crop is possible as long as the crop is established enough to withstand the impact of the tines.
