Agricultural Residue Burning and its Effect on Environment

Radhika Sharma


Abstract: Agricultural residue burning of rice stalks and wheat straws are one of the main reasons for air pollution. This pollution has adverse effect on health of people as well as on climate. The study finds that growing better variety of rice helps in improving the financial status of farmers and thus they use the combine-harvester technology which in turn makes burning almost certain. Although a ban on burning residue was imposed. Then there is example of use of Happy Seeder machine which is said to have an impact on reduction of air pollution. This machine works by sowing seed in loose remains thus making the process of burning not necessary. Happy Seeder as compared to traditional forms of burning of agricultural residue turns out to be more efficient. There are other options or alternative uses of rice and wheat straws from which they can be re used and eliminate burning process.
