Crop residues are the plant parts that are left in the field after harvesting. These residues are usually burnt to clear the field as a field preparation for the next crop. Burning residues is the cheapest and common method adapted by farmers. Burning of residues affects the soil health as well as pollute the environment. Due to burning of residue, microbes are killed and making soil unfertile. Besides macro and micro nutrients which are easily volatilized due to burning of residue in the soil. So, different scientific communities are in great concern for the management of agriculture crop residue. To manage this issue, it is necessary to adapt diversified management practices and inclusion of mechanization as a part in managing increases the scope of usage of crop residues as a future prospect. Crop residue management improves both soil and environmental Quality.
