We look at crop burning as a source of air pollution in the National Capital Region. By some estimates biomass burning, including seasonal burning of crop residue in Punjab, Haryana and parts of Uttar Pradesh, contributes 20% of the annual average particulate matter in the urban air shed of the region. While banning crop burning appears to be the straightforward solution, and one that has appealed to the courts, it is far from being easily implementable. Without cost effective alternatives to harvest and dispose the crop residue in time to sow for the next season, burning the residue is still the most viable option for many farmers, even if it significantly worsens the local and regional air quality.

The panel will explore the genesis of the problem, why it has become a particularly thorny issue in the last few years, and what are the possible technological interventions available? It will also discuss the key political, scientific, economic and social drivers that have to considered while designing a long-term solutions to the problem of crop burning.
