Pre Event Description :
The western belt of Nashik district is known for paddy cultivation. Weeding in wetland paddy is time consuming operation majorly performed by women. KVK had decided to intervened cono weeder in this area.The cono weeder has two conical rotors mounted with opposite orientation. Smooth and serrated blades are mounted alternately on the rotor to uproot and burry weeds. This can accelerate the weeding operation in wetland paddy, moreover, can reduce the drudgery involved in the operation. It is the useful tool for weeding in between rows of line sowing paddy crop.
