To motivate the farmers of Fazilka district not to burn stubble, officials and employees of various departments of the district will call the farmers on phone and appeal to them not to burn stubble.

 Deputy Commissioner Dr. Senu Duggal has appealed to other dignitaries of the society and those farmers who have not been burning the stubble for the past several years to share their experiences with other farmers on how they can sow wheat without burning the stubble.

The DC also appealed to the farmers to refrain from setting fire for the sake of environmental protection and the health of our soil. She said that the district administration established land banks for storing stubble for cattle ponds (gaushala) etc. She said that paddy stubble is used as fodder in gaushala. This arrangement has been made due to lack of space to store stubble with cattle ponds run by the NGOs.

She said that the Agriculture Department has been instructed to give information in this regard to the gaushalas and farmers. Farmers can also store their stubble in this land bank or leave it here.

The DC has instructed the Department of Agriculture and Horticulture to organize as many camps as possible in the villages to make gardeners aware of the use of stubble for mulching in gardens.She said that the Panchayats which will prevent the incidents of fire in the villages, maximum works will be done under MGNREGA scheme in those villages.

She instructed the Food Supply Department to sensitize the depot holders and the beneficiaries of the Scheme that no one should set the straw on fire.

The DC also held a meeting with the Patwaris and instructed them to sensitize the farmers for the proper paddy stubble management.
