Friday, 17 September 2021 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

The Delhi Government on Thursday submitted a third party audit report on stubble decomposing using bio-decomposer to the Central Air Quality Management Commission.

Environment Minister Gopal Rai said he and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will meet the Union Environment Minister Bhupender Yadav and submit an audit report.

This Third Party Impact Assessment was carried out by a team of WAPCOS, including its advisors - Former Director CIAE Bhopal and ICAR Pusa, New Delhi’s Ex-ADG, Head (PA&A), Advisor, Economist and Project Officers. WAPCOS had conducted a field visit and survey of 79 beneficiary farmers in 15 villages of four districts who sprayed Pusa Bio-Decomposer provided free of cost by the Delhi Government in their fields.

As per the findings of WAPCOS audit, 90 percent of farmers said that stubble decomposed in 15-20 days of spraying while earlier it took 40-45 days.

Earlier farmers had to plough the field 6-7 times before sowing wheat; this has now been reduced to 1-2 ploughing after spray of decomposer. Organic carbon in the soil has increased from 05% to 42%.

Nitrogen in the soil has increased up to 24%. Bacterial count and fungal count in the soil displayed a significant increase of 7 times and 3 times, respectively.

Germination of seeds of wheat increased from 17% to 20% due to the betterment of soil health. 45% of farmers accepted that the quantity of DAP Fertiliser was reduced from 46 Kg/Acre to 36-40 Kg/Acre as compared to the previous year. Wheat yield increased by 05% to 08%.
