The Union government will this year test a straw-decomposing technology developed by scientists at the the Indian Agricultural Research Institute, Pusa, to deter farmers from burning paddy stubble.  

The ‘PUSA Decomposer’, as it is called, is a set of four tablets made by extracting fungi strains that help the paddy straw to decompose at a much faster rate than usual, giving farmers the option to shred the straw, spray a solution containing the fungal strains, and mix it with the soil for decomposition.
