Farm Fires picking up and so will pollution
Stubble burning is provenly the most economical method for the farmer to prepare the field for sowing seed for the next harvest.
Until the engineers invent an alternative, farmers will continue to stick to this method. No official intervention will help.
How to stop farmers doing this, and who will bell the cat ?
The problem exists in other countries too. For example, the Australian authorities are facing similar situations in their own country. Stubble burning pollution clouds from Australia can reach as far as Borneo/Indonesia and even up to Singapore.
Such problems should be solved by putting "expert technical" heads together and find acceptable/effective/useful solutions.
Communication is said to be the best way of finding solutions to any problem.....said the good old sage Chanakya, didn't he ?
My appeal: please stop blaming your government for everything that does not suit you....
Think constructively and contribute with innovative ideas on how to find solutions to problems that face us......thank you !!! more
