In Delhi this year also a solution of bio-de-composer is being prepared for spraying on stubble. Paddy is cultivated in the outskirts of Delhi and after harvesting the paddy, the remaining part of the field is called stubble. Till now farmers used to get rid of it by burning the stubble because farmers want to prepare the field for sowing the next crop without wasting any time. After burning of stubble at the beginning of the winter season, the pollution level in the air increases significantly. And to get rid of stubble pollution, scientists of the Department of Microbiology at the Indian Agricultural Research Institute (Pusa Institute) have prepared a bio-de-composer solution. The Delhi government had sprayed bio-de-composer solution on 4000 acres of land last year. This year also, the department has formed 21 teams, who will go door to door to the farmers to take consent for spraying bio-de-composer solution on the stubble in the field. The Delhi government has set a target of free sprinkling in 5000 acres this year. However, this time the Delhi government has made a big change regarding making bio-de-composer solution. Till now with the help of Government Pusa Institute, bio-de-composer was made in Kharkhari Nahar Park of Najafgarh, but now the solution will be prepared in Pusa Institute itself. Bio-de-composer solutions of 10 liters volume are being prepared by Pusa Institute. The Delhi government will buy the solution from the Pusa Institute and get it sprayed free of cost in the fields of the consenting farmers. Scientists of Pusa Institute told that by mixing 10 liters of solution in 200 liters of water, they will be able to spray 1 acre of field. Pusa Institute has fixed the cost of 1 liter of bio-de-composer solution at Rs 75 i.e. Rs 750 for 10 liters of solution. The Indian Agricultural Research Institute has also prepared a powder for the first time to prepare a biode-composer solution. Scientists of Pusa Institute said that at present the price of the powder has not been fixed as the powder is still under trial. This year, this powder will be tried in 1000 acres of land in Delhi. Pusa Institute has prepared packets of 500 grams of powder. One packet can be dissolved in 200 liters of water and sprayed on 1 acre of field. Bio-de-composer scientists told that a team of 20 people including 8 scientists will work in the production unit of Pusa Institute to make bio-de-composer solution. According to the information, so far 25% solution has been prepared in Pusa Institute. In the Delhi government, Environment Minister Gopal Rai appealed to the farmers to register and said that in the first week of October, the spraying of bio-de-composer solution would be started. Spraying of Bio-de-composer will start in Punjab Environment Minister Gopal Rai in Delhi government said that after a joint meeting with the Agriculture Minister of Punjab, for the first time in Punjab, bio-decomposer spraying of Pusa Institute is going to be done on a pilot basis. Paddy is cultivated on 75 lakh acres of land in Punjab. Since the gap between harvesting and sowing is less and it takes 15 to 20 days to smelt the stubble through this decomposer, research is being done by the scientists of Pusa Institute to reduce this time gap. Gopal Rai said that in the stubble case, the Punjab government had sent a proposal to the central government to provide financial assistance to the farmers, but the central government refused. Now work is being done at two levels in Punjab. One, through bio-de-composer and second, one lakh happy seeder machines available with big farmers will be rented by the government and small farmers will be given these machines so that farmers do not burn stubble.
