Burning of crop Residual causes heath and environmental issues. It is a quick way to prepare rice fields but can cause problems. Farmers burn residual because it is the cheapest option they have. Farmers who have livestock, also use this residual to feed their animals.
Gujranwala and Sialkot are the most important systems in the wheat-rice system. Farmers cultivate less than 5 acres because farms are small in this area.
The reason for logging this petition is to reduce air pollution. Every living specie needs Oxygen to breath.
Agriculture department should educate former the side effects of burning of crop residual and provide them the more effective and better way to get their fields as they want before next crop.
