Senior scientist from Krishi Vigyan Kendra Dr. Guruprem sensitized the participants about the importance of straw management and the need of creating awareness among the rural masses. He also explained about the recommended machinery and techniques of straw management.
“Such type of campaign is necessary to sensitize the farmers about management for residue. Several efforts are being made to provide the various residue management implements on subsidy to the farmers. I appealed to the farmers to follow and spread the message given by the team of KVK for the welfare of the society and to save environment,” said Dr. Guruprem
Underscoring the impact of crop residue burning, he said crop burning leads to air, land and water pollution. It also leads to reduction of nutrients in the soil.
Keeping in mind the commitment towards farmers, safety handbooks were also distributed amongst the farmers on safe use of crop protection products.
On the other hand, the Haryana government is also set to launch a massive campaign in the state to create awareness among farmers about proper management of crops residue and the ill effects of stubble burning in view of the ensuing paddy harvesting season.
