Pushwinder Singh is an enterprising farmer of Badwali village in Rupnagar district. He owns a total of 15 acres of arable land and cultivates 5 acres of land on contract basis. He cultivates paddy all over the land. The farmer cultivates the paddy residue in his field by spreading it in the land without setting it on fire. Sharing his experience, the farmer said that after harvesting the paddy crop for the last three years, the residue was released by blowing the residue with a rotavator. He said that he has been cultivating the waste for the last four years without setting fire to it. According to the farmer, in this way his cost is reduced and the bush is completely drained. The environment and health of the soil is also improved.
