Abstract: Agriculture plays a vital role in Indian economy. The reason behind reduction in the productivity of agricultural is weeds. Weed removal is serious problem faced by the farmers that will reduce the farmer interest to continue cultivation. The main objective of this paper is to construct and develop a mechanical weeder to provide the best opportunities for cultivation. The working of this project is depends on the power transmission. This equipment is driven by the mechanical energy which moves blades to cut the weeds. The design is simple and easy to operate. This equipment is designed to minimize the human effort, to reduce the cost and provide the efficient work output. This weeder will fulfill the requirements of the marginal farmers.
