In this way, there has been a steady decline in the incidents of stubble burning in every district of Haryana as compared to last year. If we look at the figures of the last 6 years, Haryana has been successful in reducing the incidents of stubble burning by more than 55 percent. While 15,686 cases of stubble burning were registered in the year 2016, its number has come down to 6,987 in 2021. Whereas, farmers in Karnal say that the reduction in the incidents of stubble burning in the district this year is mainly due to distribution of balers by private contractors.

The baler can clear an area of ​​20 acres fairly quickly

In fact, a baler costs over Rs 15 lakh and requires three tractor-tied machines to process the paddy into compact bales. Despite the subsidy given by the government for these equipment, along with the cost of diesel, the cost of labor is also borne by the farmers. In such a situation, it is very expensive for the common farmer to buy it. So the owners of the baler are using the farmer’s land to clear the paddy and taking bales from the crop residue and selling them for about Rs 170 per quintal. At the same time, the baler can clear an area of ​​20 acres very quickly. This time more balers have become available as compared to last year. Along with this, there has also been more awareness among farmers about pollution. This is the reason that there has been a decrease in the cases of stubble burning in Haryana.

Incentive is given at the rate of Rs.2,000 per acre

Explain that a provision has been made by the state government to give an incentive amount of one thousand rupees per acre to those who do not burn stubble. Apart from this, farmers are given an incentive of Rs 50 per quintal and subsidy on straw management equipment for making stubble bales. Along with this, 50 percent subsidy is being given to the farmers on the equipment of crop residue management and 80 percent on the custom hiring center. If a farmer takes bales of stubble to ethanol plants in Karnal and Panipat, he is given an incentive of Rs 2,000 per acre and if a farmer gives stubble to gaushalas, an incentive of Rs 1,500 is given.
