If we look at the net cost-benefit analysis, a farmer will get twice the profit of what he will spend. This is a new invention and Pusa Institute is one of the most reputed institutes in the country. We must implement this as soon as possible." Taking to social media, he tweeted, "Farmers are also worried about the pollution that is caused due to stubble burning every year. A technique has been developed by the scientists of IARI - Bio Decomposer. I visited to observe the technique today. Scientists believe that because of this, farmers will not have to burn stubble, the stubble will turn into manure and the farmers' yield will also increase." The technology, called Pusa Decomposer, involves making a liquid formulatio­n using Pusa decomposer capsules and readily available inputs, fermenting it over 8-10 days, and then spraying the mixture on fields with crop stubble to ensure speedy biodecompo­sition of the stubble. This improves the fertility and productivi­ty of the soil as the stubble works as manure and compost for the crops and lesser fertilizer consumptio­n will be required in the future. The cost of the capsule is very less, we will be getting a proposal mentioning all the important details such as cost per acre soon. This is the result of many years of hard work and efforts of the scientists, and they have got the validation after a year after all their pilot testing and projection. They have also given their technique a license for commercial exploitati­on. On a question of why there is no action on stubble burning throughout the year, CM Kejriwal said, "I agree that no major efforts have been made the whole year on stubble burning. I do not want to blame anyone but the central government is also trying its best. The union has held meetings, initiated new schemes and implemente­d custom hiring sectors, and given subsidies on new machinery. “The scientists gave a presentati­on to me of this simple, doable, and practical technique to stop stubble burning.” “I will request him to speak to the neighborin­g states to take all measures to effectivel­y implement it despite the crunch of time. We will surely implement this technique in a very efficient and effective manner in Delhi,” Kejriwal said. Briefing the media after his visit, he said, "Delhi and many other North Indian states are covered with smoke due to stubble burning in the neighborin­g states by the farmers. Pusa Agricultur­e Institute scientists have developed a new and innovative technique, under which they give four capsules, with the help of which the farmers can prepare a 25-liter of a liquid mixture with jaggery and chickpea flour, which is sufficient to cover 1 hectare of land.

Kejriwal said that this technique involves the spraying of Pusa decomposer capsules along with a liquid formulatio­n using readily available elements, that will help decompose the stubble into compost, decrease the use of fertilizer­s and increase the productivi­ty of the farm soil. “I will meet the Union Environmen­t Minister Prakash Javadekar in a day or two to discuss the efficient and effective implementa­tion ) $ 1 "" 2 3 " * .
