The Delhi government will spray a bio-decomposer on 5,000 acres of basmati and non-basmati fields to prevent stubble burning in the capital, Environment Minister Gopal Rai said on Tuesday.

Rai also said the bio-decomposer will be sprayed on 5,000 acres or 2,023 hectares of land in Punjab on a trial basis.

The bio-decomposer is a microbial solution which can turn paddy straw into manure in 15-20 days. Addressing a press conference here, Rai said the Delhi government will spray the bio-decomposer free of cost on 5,000 acres of basmati and non-basmati fields this year.

The government has constituted 21 teams to create awareness about the effectiveness of the bio-decomposer and register farmers who want to use the solution in their fields, he said.
