The Punjab Remote Sensing Centre under the leadership of Punjab Government has developed a new mobile application ATR with a view to curb the incidence of burning of paddy straw in Punjab. Giving information about this application during the annual meeting held in the meeting hall, Deputy Commissioner Mr. Sandeep Hans said that the use of this application would go a long way in reducing the incidence of burning of straw. He said that this application could be used by Nodal Officers and Cluster Officers.

The Deputy Commissioner further said that for collecting straw in common areas, cattle ponds and gaushalas, places have been identified in the districts where the farmer or any entrepreneur can store his straw. This stored basmati straw can be taken to places where it can be used as fodder for animals.

The Deputy Commissioner said that the state government has formulated a comprehensive program to dispose of straw without burning it. As part of this, 23,500 more farming machines are being provided to farmers this year through individual or group or cooperative societies at 50 per cent to 80 per cent subsidy. In addition, 51,000 straw handling machines have been provided in the last two years.
