  • Bio-decomposer technique of converting crop stubble into compost.
  • It is deemed a cost-effective way to deal with air pollution caused due to crop stubble burning.
  • The technology, called ‘Pusa Decomposer’, involves making a liquid formulation using decomposer capsules and readily available inputs.
  • The fermentation takes place over 8-10 days and then sprayed on fields with crop stubble to ensure speedy bio-decomposition of the stubble.
  • It takes around 20 days for the degradation process to be completed.
  • The decomposer improves the fertility and productivity of the soil as the stubbleworks as manure and compost for the crops and lesser fertiliser consumption is required in the future.
