Reduced Air Pollution.
Bahraich is an agriculture-based district and most of the population practices agriculture for their livelihood. Hence, the District Administration of Bahraich initiated the project to tackle and deal with the situation of the burning residual waste of crops.
An increase in cases of burning of parali due to a lack of awareness about the demerits of parali burning which increased air pollution, and health issues, consequently affecting the fertility of the soil.
The district administration created awareness among farmers about the disadvantages of burning the residual waste of crops and generated ways to decompose the residual and use it as a fertilizer.
The project resulted in a sharp decrease in cases of burning of parali which increased the fertility of the soil consequently reducing the air pollution and airborne infection in the area.
Initially, there was more resistance from the farmers’ side.
The district administration used a waste decomposer to turn parali into fertilizer.
The administration is focusing to ensure zero cases of parali burning so that air pollution can be reduced.
The district administration is moving more toward the use of new technologies to improve the environmental conditions and agricultural techniques.
