How and when to use Conoweeder?

  • At least 3 times weeding is required during a season
  • Early first weeding is an absolute necessity. Late weeding may provide time for the weeds to get nourished, thus resulting in the damage of crops
  • Weeding should be carried out within 15 to 18 days after the sowing ofthe plants
  • During this phase damaged or missingplants should be replaced
  • The Conoweeder Machine can be pushed in back and forth movement between rows or can either be pushed forward or pulled backward too
  • Next weeding should be taken up afteranother 15 days. Third weeding, though not absolutely essential, it should be remembered that eachweeding aerates the soil and is always beneficial.


Weeds take away the nutrients of the plants and nourish various destructive insects,thus causing reduction in yield. Here lies the importance and utility of a Conoweeder Machine –

  • Easy to operate
  • Increases weeding efficiency
  • Mixes uprooted weeds with soil properly and pulverizes the soil
  • Reduces cost of weeding
  • No chemical residue
  • Retains soil moisture
  • Helps timely weeding hence increases yield
  • Helps in better development of root system

 Points to remember:

  • This machine doesn’t work satisfactorily during the initial stage of weed-growth. It is generally used for the removal of grown – up weeds.
  • It can be used in an area where paddy is planted in rows.
  • Field should be thoroughly puddled for the machine to work easily.


  • Increases weeding efficiency.
  • Mixes uprooted weeds with soil properly.
  • Aerates and pulverizes the soil.
  • Develops root system.
  • Reduces cost of weeding.
  • Helps timely weeding, hence increases yield.

  • Early first Weeding is a must.
  • After sowing of the plants, the first weeding should be done within 15 to 18 days.
  • The machine can be pushed forward or pulled backward or it can be moved back and forth, between the rows.
  • Weeding should be done at 15 days interval.


  • Easy to use.
  • Mixes uprooted weeds with soil and aerates the soil.
  • Reduces weeding cost.
  • Retains soil moisture.
  • No Chemical residue.
  • Increases yeild.
  • Helps in better development of root system.
S.R.I. Marker :

In S.R.I. method, wide spacing of crops is very important. S.R.I. Markers help farmers in transplanting paddy crops at 10X10 inches spacing. “Banabethi” manufactures Roller Markers of 2 sizes.

Important Points:

  • Land should be leveled and wetted but it should not be water – logged.
  • The roller marker should be pulled at a certain speed otherwise the rollers would get dragged instead of being turned.
  • The paddy seedling has to be planted where the vertical and horizontal lines meet.
Paddle Thresher :

Banabethi manufactures a thresher machine called Paddle Thresher. The machine is made up of superior quality MS Sheets and cast – iron plates.

  • Both side gear cover
  • Number of crunches - 2(Double crunch)
Leaf Colour Chart (L. C. C.) :

These charts are Nitrogen parameters which provide guidance to the farmers regarding improved Nitrogen (N) management. Nitrogen is applied by the farmers in rice plants at different growth stages, but the amount of N to be applied and the time of applications vary substantially. LCC helps to synchronize N application with the real time and quantity demand of the rice crop.


  • 4 panel LCC that can be used for all high yielding rice varieties.
  • LCC from left to right – the given colours are numbered as 2,3,4,5. ‘2’ denotes less N in plant. ‘3’ denotes presence of correct amount of N in plant where as ‘4’ and ‘5’ denote excessive and over-excessive presence of N respectively.
  • Colours of the chart to be matched with the first unfolded leaf of a plant every 18 to 20 days in case of long duration crops and every 15 to 18 days in case of short duration crops. The person should stand with his back towards the sun while matching the colours.

How does LCC help the farmers?

  • LCC helps to decide whether the application of N needs to be adjusted up or down based on the leaf colour throughout a plant’s lifetime
  • Helps to prevent under or over usage of N in rice plants
  • Helps to reduce pest attacks since presence of excessive nitrogen attracts pests in plants.
  • Helps to increase yield.
Horticulture :

Horticulture is the science of plant cultivation which includes the process of soil preparation for seeds, tubers or cuttings. Horticulture involves study of plant propagation and cultivation, plant breeding, genetic engineering, plant biochemistry and physiology. Horticulturists basically work with fruits, berries, vegetables, flowers, shrubs etc. They work to improve the quality and quantity of yield and create resistance to insects, pests, plant-diseases and environmental hazards.

Plastic-Mulching Sheet :
Plastic Mulching Sheet marketed by “BANABETHI” is an agricultural no-dig technique which is used either in establishing a new-garden or to enrich existing plants. Covering of soil around plants with these special plastic sheets is called mulching. The various advantages of this technique are –

  • Retains soil moisture.
  • Soil temperature in planting bed is raised resulting in early harvest.
  • Prevents weed-growth.
  • Helps in pest-control.
  • Keeps the soil under the mulch loose and well-aerated.
  • Saves on fertilizer and pesticide costs.
  • Maintain soil structure.
  • Used properly, it can generate healthy, productive and low maintenance crops.

Irrigation System:

Irrigation is an artificial way of water application to the soil, in case of inadequate rainfall. Thus irrigation is an absolute must for growing agricultural as well as horticultural crops, maintenance of landscape, growing vegetation in dry areas, in green house and poly house.

Not only does irrigation supply water to plants, it also performs some other functions, such as –

  • Protecting plants against frost.
  • Decreasing weed-growth in fields.
  • Preventing soil consolidation.

Our organization offers a series of irrigation system, both for open-field cultivation and horticulture in controlled environment. They are –

  • Drip Irrigation System.
  • Sprinkler Irrigation System.
  • Pop-Up Irrigation System.
  • Rain Gun irrigation System.

Drip Irrigation System:
As the name suggests, in case of Drip Irrigation, water is applied drop by drop at the root zone of plants.


  • Most water efficient method.
  • Reduces evaporation.
  • Run-off water is minimized.
  • System is designed in such a way, that either water can be distributed uniformly throughout the field or can be applied specifically to individual plants.
  • Reduces weed – growth resulting in reducing labor cost on weeding.
  • Keeps ideal moisture condition at root-zone to get maximum output.
  • Makes undulating and saline land cultivable.

Sprinkler Irrigation System:

It is an overhead irrigation system in which water is sent through pipe-lines to one or more central locations in the field and distributed by over-head sprinklers.

Product Details:

  • The stem of the sprinkler is generally referred to as a solid-set irrigation system.
  • Higher pressure rotating sprinklers are called rotors.
  • Rotors are designed to rotate fully or partially.



  • Distributes water in the field uniformly.
  • Reduces water loss.
  • Reduces labor cost.
  • Cost-effective and mechanized system.



Pop-Up Irrigation System:
Pop-Up Irrigation System is also a type of Sprinkler Irrigation System.
“BANABETHI” supplies Pop-Ups of two distinct types:

  • Large Area Pop-Ups: These Pop-Ups are used for watering large areas. The system works on water-pressure. It is rotated by a mechanical device which can cover a full or partial circle as per requirement.
  • Low Pressure Pop-Ups: It has a light return spring and low friction design. Hence it works on much lower water pressure compared to any other type of Pop-Ups.
    • Rain Gun: It is also an over head irrigation system. It is almost similar to rotors. The only difference is that it operates at a very high pressure and distributes a greater volume of water with nozzles of different diameters.


  • It is a long range sprinkler having a greater capacity.
  • It covers a huge area in a very short time.
  • Rain guns are not only used for irrigation purpose. They are also used for industrial applications, such as dust suppression, etc.
