    Default Sugarcane - weeding - labour problem

    Dear All,

    Iam planning to cultivate a 200 acres crop of sugarcane. Now, the problem is that there is severe labour shortage when it come s to weeding.

    Could anyone provide some insight into some machinery which could be used to weeding in sugarcane crop and also require less labour?

    Dear Nagendranath,
    A tractor driven cultivator may be helpful for weeding the sugarcan field which is available in all cities of north India.

    Dear Satyavir,

    The idea is good but when the sugarcane is abt 4-5 ft high, then we probably cannot use the cultivator. Please recommened how to go abt that. i was researching and found this interesting link. YouTube - Johnny's Glaser Wheel Hoe #9090
    Its a wheel hoe. Would you recommend that? Please advise.

    Dear Kirti,

    How good would be using pesticides for weeding purposes. Will the said pesticides clear the total weeds without damaging the sugarcane crop? Please advise.
