K.U.L.T. Fingerweeder

Hoeing inside the plant row is possible!

Technical data
K.U.L.T. Fingerhacke

With the K.U.L.T. Kress fingerweeder you can cultivate within the plant row to reduce manual labor.
The plastic fingers of the KRESS fingerweeder work around the sides of the plant and lift the weeds out. Weeds are controlled in areas not reached by sweeps and knives.
The K.U.L.T. Kress fingerweeders are made with a long lasting proprietary compound with a very reasonable per row cost. Retrofitting to existing cultivators is easily possible.

Range of use:

Maize (corn), Tobacco, Sunflowers, Sugar beets, Soybeans , Cabbage, Lettuce, Beans, Leek, Tomatoes, Artichokes, Lavender, Kitchen and medical herbs, Strawberries, Pumpkins, Tree-nurseries, Roses and more

We would like to welcome you on one of the following shows and conferences:

We have been moved

We are very happy, because we moved to our new, much bigger property.
The old location became too small and so you will find us from now on in Derdinger Str. 20 in 75057 Kürnbach, Germany

A New camera system on the market - K.U.L.T. official distributor of Pathfinder Agrar from Nalatec


K.U.L.T. has expanded its range of camera guidance systems for hoeing machinery with Nalatec's patented pathfinderAgrar camera system.

The Pathfinder Agrar from Nalatec system, in contrast to the camera guidance from the K.U.L.T.iVision product division, works with a fixed camera mounted on the side of the tractor viewing a row of crop, an APP controlled system activates a hydraulic ram on the lower link of the tractor to position the hoe accurately between the crop rows providing an economic solution to existing tractor and hoe combinations.
