In this episode Tejinder Singh, a farmer of village Chudiala, has figured out a way to make manure from stubble. Those who plant potatoes after harvesting paddy, which required a lot of manure for them. But now he has done this experiment in collaboration with Krishi Vigyan Kendra Tepla to reduce the consumption of this manure and to dispose of the stubble.
Farmer Tejinder Singh has buried the paddy straw in the fields with the help of rotavator instead of destroying it by setting fire. After running the rotavator on the stubble of all the fields, the fields were filled with water. In about 10 to 12 days, due to waterlogging in the fields, the stubble will completely rot. When farmers plant potatoes after this, they will not have to use additional manure. During this, not only potatoes, mustard, carrot, radish, turnip, spinach, peas, cabbage, fodder and other crops can be planted.
