Controlling Weeds in your crop is a serious issue. Effective and early weed control is critical for high yields. A good Cultivator/Tined Weeder is a must. The Einbock is simply the best there is for the serious producer. The job it does, the superior craftsmanship and other features not found in other weeders makes it a tool that is becoming indispensable for a growing number of successful organic farms.

The Einbock Tined Weeder works in two ways: Pulling up some of the weeds and burying some. Seventy percent of the success in using tine weeders stems from covering and choking germinating weeds with topsoil. Thirty percent of the elimination results are achieved by uprooting them. Either way, the Einbock Tined Weeder is an effective way to put you in control of your weeds, instead of the weeds in control of your crop!The Tined Weeder is used in “Blind Cultivation” and as crops mature.“Blind Cultivation” is also known as “Broadcast Weed Cultivation” “Blind Cultivation” is done before the weed seedlings are even seen. This would be when the weeds are the smallest and therefore more vulnerable. At this stage they are susceptible to disturbances, such as the action of a tined weeder. When the soil is disturbed at this time it becomes too dry and loose for the seed to grow in. Using a tined weeder disrupts the soil, one half to one inch typically. Using the tined weeder when the weeds are at the white root or cotylen is best. Fighting weeds has to be timed around soil cultivation and sowing. Although tined weeding is most effective before the new plants have emerged, it is still possible to use the weeder once the weeds have passed the small-leaf stage by having a more intense weeding procedure- more pressure on the tines or a steeper angle. It is important to choose the best time to use the Tined Weeder. Put in use at noon, in sunny weather, will dry up the weed seedlings that are pulled up and eliminate them.
Used in many crops and pasture too! Successful in grain, corn, beetroot, potatoes, peas, soybeans, tomatoes, peanut, cotton, onions, strawberries and grassland etc. Based on the age of the plants, your speed and operation will vary. The tined weeder fits perfectly into any over all cultivation concept, which range from crop rotation, fertilization and improving soil to mechanical weed control. A tined weeder can be successfully used from early to late in the crop cycle. When working in more mature crops, tines can be removed so the plants will not be harmed.
It is important to adjust tines to fit a specific operation. You may feel uncomfortable the first time you use a Tined Weeder. You may think you are doing more harm than good, but with practice, you will more fully understand how you can use a weeder and which settings work best. It will be up to you-because you know best about your soil, conditions and weather- to determine the ideal tine setting, working depth, and speed
