Smog Issue: Farmers Urged to Avoid Burning Remains of Paddy Field
MULTAN, Oct 10 (APP): The Agriculture Department urged farmers to avoid burning remains of paddy fields as it adds pollution (smog) in the atmosphere.
The smog affects humans, plants, vegetables and also results in road accidents. According to official sources, it was often observed that farmers burnt remains of crops. The Punjab Agriculture Department constituted different teams to inspect agriculture fields. The farmers were instructed to avoid burning remains of paddy fields. The smog puts a negative impact on human health and also affects soil’s fertility.
The field assistants of the agriculture department were instructed to report to high-ups in case any farmer is found burning remains of paddy crop. Action would be initiated against such farmers. The fire damaged upper part of soil which contained organic material. However, the organic material is of vital importance for land’s fertility. The department proposed farmers to plough the crops remains as it would surely help improve health of soil. Similarly, the farmers should apply urea fertilizer after ploughing such fields.
