Focus Site Project: Evaluating the benefits of the Terrateck wheel hoe with Bio-Discs for weed control in vegetables
This project will evaluate the benefits of a French made Terrateck wheel hoe with Bio-Discs which appears to address several significant problems for smaller growers:
- Challenges of efficiently cultivating around drilled crops/earthing up small transplants
- Problems of using tractor mounted kit on sloping or uneven ground
- The lack of horticultural kit for small to medium growers (and lack of UK manufacture)
- Comparison with the well-known Glaser (Swiss) wheel hoe and similar older models which are still widely used.
