The weeder consists of two rotors, float, frame and handle. The rotors are cone frustum in shape, smooth and serrated strips are welded on the surface along its length. The rotors are mounted in tandem with opposite orientation. The float, rotors and handle are joined to the frame. The float controls working depth and does not allow rotor assembly to sink in the puddle. The cono weeder is operated by pushing action. The orientation of rotors create a back and forth movement in the top 3 cm of soil and thus uproots weeds.
