Best Out Of Waste from Parali, creative use of agricultural waste

Many women of the village joined in this noble cause


Government has been worried for many years due to incidents of stubble burning in many states including Punjab, Haryana. Many steps have also been taken to solve this problem. Stubble burning in the capital Delhi is considered responsible for the problem of pollution. In paddy harvesting, the upper part of the crop is cut off, but its roots remain in the ground. For the farmers, it is agricultural waste, that is, it is of no use to them. These residues are called stubble. When farmers have to clear the fields for sowing the next crop, they set the dry stubble on fire. Farmers call it their compulsion to burn stubble. The government is also working on its many options. Even at the state level, some people are taking steps to solve this problem. One of them is Sunita Kumari, a resident of Bihar. Sunita has made excellent and creative use of paddy straw, which is considered useless.

Agricultural scientists believe that by using paddy straw in this way, not only will women get an opportunity to earn, but the environment will also be safe. Instead of burning paddy straw, it can be used for many other things. Best out of waste can be like-

  • Paddy straw is used to prepare straw for mushroom cultivation.
  • According to experts, instead of burning paddy straw, it can be used as animal fodder.
  • Paddy straw can also be put to good use by making compost.
  • It can also be used as fuel in power houses.
  • According to agricultural experts, leaving the straw in the field without burning it maintains the moisture of the field. Straw gets composted, making the soil more fertile.
  • If you also want to earn some extra money along with saving the environment, then instead of burning the stubble, make good use of it.
