Pusa Decomposer technique will curb stubble burning Pollution

  • About: Delhi and many other North Indian States are covered with smoke during winters due to stubble burning in the neighboring States by the farmers.
  • Recently, A bio-decomposer technique developed by scientists  
  • Bio-decomposer technique is known as ‘PUSA Decomposers’ for converting crop stubble into compost  
  • It is an efficient and effective, cheaper, doable and practical technique to stop stubble burning.
  • Itis an eco-friendly and environmentally useful technology and will contribute to achieve Swachh Bharat Mission.
Agri-News PUSA Decomposers :
  • PUSA Decomposers - The decomposers are in the form of capsules made by extracting fungi strains that help the paddy straw to decompose at a much faster rate than usual. Fungi helps to produce the essential enzymes for the degradation process.
  • Decomposer Mixture involves making a liquid formulation using decomposer capsules and fermenting it over 8-10 days and then spraying the mixture on fields with crop stubble to ensure speedy bio-decomposition of the stubble .
  • Farmers can prepare 25 litre of liquid mixture with 4 capsules, jaggery and chickpea flour. The mixture is sufficient to cover 1 hectare of land.
  • Time to Decompose takes around 20 days for the degradation process to be completed.
  • Under usual circumstances, shredded and watered paddy straw, which is mixed with soil, takes at least 45 days to decompose.
  • It does not give enough time for farmers to prepare fields for the wheat crop on time.
