A favourite with market gardeners.
For weed control in seedling plantings and clean cultivation between narrow-planted rows of crops.
An oscillating hoe is much more efficient than a standard hoe. The blade of the oscillating hoe works parallel to the ground in a easy push and pull motion, replacing exhausting hoeing with a standard hoe. The weeds are undercut and weed seeds distributed by the wind or animals stay on the surface and can’t germinate.
The vertical edges of the blade are sharpened so a clean cut is possible very close to young plants without disturbing their growth.
Good for cutting off the weeds just under the surface without disturbing the soil.
Also known as a hula hoe, swing hoe or a stirrup hoe.
Comes without handle.
