I have seen a finger weedingmachine in the Netherlands that works very
efficient, It can be used between the plants and can be fitted behind any
machine, Its an active rotating system activated by secundary
'fingers' that rotate into the soil. The weedingfingers are rubbery so
they don't damage the plants.
What is the place of suppressive crop cultivars in weed control?
Between plants that root deep there is a possibility but I don't have
positive results except for permanent situations.
