Stubble burning ca now be dealt with just a 5 rupees capsules!
New Delhi: Scientists at the Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI) Pusa have found a solution to the growing problem of stubble burning. It is so cheap that every farmer can get it easily. It is in the form of a small capsule, which costs just 5 rupees.
You will only need four capsules to convert one acre of field straw into useful manure. So according to your area or land, you can buy and use it. However, you have to GO to PUSA (New Delhi) to get it.
Yudhveer Singh, Principal Scientist, Department of Microbiology in Pusa, who was part of the team developing this capsule, said that a team of scientists had been working on the project for the last fifteen years. It does not have any side effects. Due to its use, the waste of the farm is decomposed into compost. It also maintains the moisture of the area for longer.
Farmers are creating problems for themselves by burning crop residues or farm waste. The heat released from these wastes kills insects or worms and reduces the fertility of the field.
