I have a one row Lilliston rolling cultivator that was made by Donalds good friend Paul. I am quite satisfied with it, and have found that I can also draw rows with it if it is lowered fully down and pulled with a bit of speed.

If you are wanting to do cultivating that includes in row (between plants in the row). I would look at finger weeders. You can eliminate up to 90% or more of the weeds/grass within the row. I purchased a pair from Tilmor which you can Google. I run a pair of those with beet knives outside the plants in the row an inch or so deep. The most efficient time to eliminate or slay weeds is when they are in the white thread stage.

Donald had a video on you tube on the rolling cultivators.  I cannot find it maybe someone else knows where it is.
