Dharmendra of Rohtas to take training in stubble management in Ludhiana, 20 agricultural scientists selected from Bihar

Dharmendra of Rohtas to take training in stubble management in Ludhiana, 20 agricultural scientists selected from Bihar

 Due to burning of stubble, where the fertility of the field is destroyed, the environment is also being harmed heavily. At the same time, its efficient management can fulfill the proverb of spewing gold in the fields. Fertilizer power can be increased in the fields by developing biochar technology through this straw. Through biochar technology, the stubble will be smelted at high temperature to produce charcoal. Bio-fertilizer will be made from this charcoal. Agriculture Department has selected Karghar Dharmendra of Rohtas district for Punjab Agricultural University Ludhiana for taking training in stubble management. Along with them, 20 agricultural scientists, technical experts and people doing better work in the agriculture sector have been selected from across the state. The training will run from 27 to 30 September. After taking the training, it will be their responsibility to take the biochar technology to the farmers in the district.

According to agricultural scientists, biochar technology is very easy and cheap. Biofertilizer will not only keep the soil healthy and increase its fertility, but its use can increase the production of farmers by more than two times. Dharmendra Kumar says that biochar in agriculture can change the fate of farmers here. The fertility of the soil will be increased by converting crop residue straw into biochar. According to Dharmendra, just as coal is made by burning wood, similarly crop residue is smelted at high temperature to form coal. This finished coal is not burnt in a chulha, rather it is used for a long time and buried in the soil to increase the fertility of the fields.

Adding this coal to the soil increases its fertility. This also increases the water holding capacity. Harmful gas emissions are also reduced and the carbon content will be stabilized for a long time. Told that he has received a letter from the Directorate of Distance Education of Bihar Agricultural University, Sabour for this training. In which from September 27 to 30, Punjab University has been selected to take training in Ludhiana. In this, 20 people from across the state have been selected. Apart from him, Ashok Kumar, Kumar Premchand, Bhikhari Rai have also been selected from Rohtas district. It is to be known that before this Dharmendra has taken training from IIT Kharagpur about advanced farming techniques.
