September 22, 2022 |

In India, The Hindu reported that the government of Delhi will spray a bio-decomposer free of cost over 5,000 acres of paddy fields in the city this year, with the main aim of controlling stubble burning and reducing air pollution during winter.

Environment Minister Gopal Rai announced the setting up of 21 teams to carry out the task. 

According to the report, the bio-decomposer solution is one of the 15 focus points in the government’s Winter Action Plan, which will be released later this month. Rai also said this year the bio-decomposer has also been provided in the form of a powder and that the government plans to use it on 1,000 acres on a trial basis.

“We received a very positive result last year. The stubble decomposed properly. Moreover, there was an increase in the fertility of the soil.  The teams responsible will start spraying the bio-decomposer solution from the first week of October,” Rai was quoted as saying.
