Burning of crop residue has greatly contributes to air pollution worldwide. It could cause a matter of national concern as it can affect human health. With this, the Nature Conservancy in India has initiated a promotion to develop science-based solutions to prevent gas emissions.
Afterwards, it promotes the use of Happy Seeder that arms farmers with a tool for crop residue management. It is a tractor that cuts and lifts rice straw and turn it as mulch. This equipment can also help farmers save from fuel, farm labor, and reduces chemical use.
