What is Weeding?

Weeding is the process of removal of unwanted plants or crops from the soil, which is commonly known as weeds.

Weeds grow along with the required crop and absorb nutrients and water required for their growth.

This creates competitive conditions and starvation or nutrient-deficient conditions for the cultivated crop, affecting their production efficiency.

Commonly used weeding method is hand pulling and cultivation where gardeners or farmers use a small shovel known as a trowel to dig individual weeds.
