Harvester operating sans super straw management system impounded in Gharuan village

Tribune News Service

The District Administration today (October 13) impounded a combine harvester operating without super straw management system attached to it and imposed a penalty of Rs 50,000 on the violator as an environmental compensation.

About super straw management system

Super straw management system (SMS) attached with the combine chops the paddy straw into minute pieces, which makes it easier for other machines to operate in the fields. The Super SMS alone holds the potential to do away with stubble burning trends as other machines can directly sow wheat seedlings while ploughing the existing residue in the field.

Deputy Commissioner Girish Dayalan said checking by joint teams of the Agriculture Department and the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) found the combine harvester bearing registration number PB12J1168 operating without attachment and use of super straw management system (Super SMS) at Gharuan village in the Kharar block.

Dayalan said the combine was seized and the violator, Balwinder Singh, had been asked to deposit the environmental compensation within the stipulated time period.

The Deputy Commissioner said it was necessary to curtail stubble burning to prevent environmental pollution. Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, it becomes all more important as polluting air quality may put people with co-morbidity at higher risk.

He called upon farmers and combine operators to resort to stubble management practices by adopting new hi-tech technologies to shun stubble burning.

The Deputy Commissioner has issued prohibitory orders upon the use of combine harvesters sans super straw management system in the district. The Punjab Pollution Control Board under the Prevention and Control of Pollution Act,1981, has also issued directions that no harvester combine will be allowed to harvest paddy in Punjab without functional super straw management system. Environmental compensation of Rs 50,000, Rs 75,000 and Rs 1 lakh is imposed upon the owners of harvester combines found operating without the attachment and use of super straw management system on the first, second, third and subsequent violation of the orders, respectively.

Super straw management system (SMS) attached with the combine chops the paddy straw into minute pieces, which makes it easier for other machines to operate in the fields. The Super SMS alone holds the potential to do away with stubble burning trends as other machines can directly sow wheat seedlings while ploughing the existing residue in the field.
