A cultivator is a farm implement primarily used for secondary tillage.
Cultivators breaks and pulverize the soil, either before planting to aerate the soil and prepare a smooth, loose seedbed or after the crop has begun growing to kill weeds by uprooting them. Unlike a harrow, which disturbs the entire surface of the soil, cultivators are designed to disturb the soil in careful patterns, sparing the crop plants but disrupting the weeds.
- Cultivators are used for seedbed preparation both in dry and wet soils.
- It is also used for weeding/intercultural purpose by adjusting the tynes in wider row crops like Sugarcane, Cotton etc.
- It can be used for loosing the soil after plant germination to aerate the roots.
- 18″-32″ adjustable width.
- Height adjustable hitch.
- Built strong & tough.

- As time passes by, foot traffic or weather conditions cause the soil to compact, making it difficult for growing plants to get water and air to survive.
- Cultivators have enough strength to loosen different soil conditions to prepare for planting. With tines and disks, they can break clods into small pieces. That way, your plants get more air and water, also draining efficiently.
- Besides that, it helps in mixing soil with other components, such as manure, compost, fertilizer, or potting mixes.
- Cultivators can help remove weeds efficiently.
- This is because when you apply the tines to the soil, it loosens up both the soil and weeds.

WHEN TO CULTIVATE
A cultivator works optimally when the soil is slightly moist to the touch. Soil that is too dry or wet will be difficult to cultivate with ease.
