Consisting of semi-flexible star-shaped fingers which rotate around the plants and are usually mounted on legs which follow the micro-topography of the soil, star-shaped finger weeders are implements which have already been helping deal with grass control in rows of crops for decades, working very close to the plants.
The design scope is from the star, to the support post, not including the upper structure.
