Stubble Burning

Sustainability, more than anything else is agriculture’s biggest challenge

So, of many challenges faced by Agriculture one of them is Stubble farming- burning of paddy fields after harvesting the crop to sow wheat. It directly contributes to environmental pollution, melting of Himalayan Glaciers and destroys the top fertile layer of the soil. So, with the hope of restoring balance in the environment the innovative youth from the prestigious institute of IISER- Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Bhopal addressed the young Pranganites about the problem and the solution to resolve the same. The students were thrilled to learn about Stubble burning and asked questions like What if the stubble is used to generate biomass energy? Each one of them felt inspired and inquisitive to discover more way out like this for a cleaner and healthier environment.
