Abstract:

At present, the air pollution of Delhi NCR added up by the stubble burning has become a serious environmental hassle, which has put the air quality index of Delhi in the category ‘severe’. While blaming the farmers for this trouble, it is a choice of wise to understand the underlying root causes resulting in the stubble burning. In this decisive situation to bring up a solution for this issue, this review suggests the production of biochar from agricultural residue and utilization of the same for carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas mitigation, as a rectifying measure of stubble burning effects.
