A farming hoe also known as the Dutch hoe with a sharp piece of metal at the end of a wooden rod pointing in sharp angle designed to cultivate soil or penetrate any fragile or soft object. — In-game description

The Farming Hoe is an agriculture tool that can be used to dig up Earthworms for fishing bait or it can be used as a weapon. However, its primary use is in horticulture as it provides the means for players to dig a plot for planting seeds. This is particularly useful for players who wish to avoid towns while still being able to have enough food to survive in Chernarus.
