Now farmers are also beginning to understand the damage caused by burning paddy straw. Through the efforts of agricultural scientists and the government, they have come to know that burning it will harm the fertility of their fields. Also, the action will be taken separately. So they have now started managing it with machines and Pusa Decomposer. In a report by the Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI), it has been told that the incidents of stubble burning have reduced compared to last year. Delhi and Rajasthan have done the most wonderful work in this matter.
