Steketee finger weeder cultivator The Steketee Finger Weeder is an entirely new innovation in the challenging practice of inner-row mechanical weeding and cultivation.

The Finger Weeder is specially designed to control small and just emerging weeds. It consists of a steel turning disc with flexible polyurethane fingers or brush fingers on it.

How it works:
  • The polyurethane fingers turn in between the crop row, driven by the steel fingers, dislodging small weeds.
  • Ball-bearing construction ensures trouble free operation.
  • Depth and width adjustments are infinite.
  • Ideal for use in well established brassicas like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage.
  • The Finger Weeder is suitable for weeding at typical cultivation speeds.
