Video explains use of a rotary weeder in lowland rice

Weeds are important constraints for rice production. Effective weed management can increase yields by more than 50%, but usually takes a lot of time. One such labor-saving method is the use of the rotary weeder.

This farmer to farmer video produced by the Africa Rice Center shows farmers how to control weeds in lowland rice most effectively.

It is part of a set of four videos on weed management for lowland rice produced by the Center as part of the early-win projects of the Africa RISING project.



The videos are also available in French and Swahili.
