Abstract: This paper introduces the idea of a battery-powered weeding mechanism that can be used to weed at chickpea plants with 300 mm row spacing. In order to take on clay soil, a single row battery-operated weeder was designed, developed, and evaluated. The results showed that, at 5% significance levels, the depth of operation and operation speed had a substantial impact on both weeding and field efficiency. Operating at a speed of 1.5 to 2.0 km/h and a depth of 30 to 50 mm, the average weeding efficiency, field capacity, field efficiency, and percentage plant damage were found to be 90.79%, 0.046 ha/h, 84.72%, and 3.18%. The specific type of weeding blade increases weeding efficiency and lowers the possibility of weed escape. All things taken into account the battery-powered single-row weeder that has been designed could be a useful tool for chickpea farmers to carry out their weeding activities more effectively and with less effort.
