Brochure on Alternatives to Open Burning Demonstration Project in Punjab


 Punjab Agricultural Management & Extension Training Institute (PAMETI) handled a demonstration project titled “Climate & Clean Air Coalition to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants,” from 2017 to 2019, in Punjab. The objective of this project was to inform, educate, motivate, and convince the farmers and stakeholders alike to manage the crop residue by making use of all the available technologies for crop residue management (CRM). The project was implemented in six villages viz Bhoewali, Qiampur, and Rajjian villages of Amritsar district and Tungaan, Uppli, and Kanoi villages of Sangrur district. In all, two project fellows and four demonstrators were engaged in the selected villages. Implements such as Happy Seeder, PAU Straw-Cutter-Cum-Spreader, and Mould-Board Plough have been provided in these villages, to help the farmers to manage the crop residue. The following brochure provides an doverview of the interventions and project results.
