|Early removal of weeds eliminates competition with the developing crop and reduces physical damage to the root system which is likely to happen when done at a later stage.
Earthing up of the crop should be done at the beginning of flowering. However, no cultivation activities should be done other than hand pulling of weeds once pegging has started.
