Which state/UT Government is to adopt "Bio-Decomposer" spraying to counter stubble burning?

[A]. Haryana
[B]. Delhi
[C]. Puducherry
[D]. Maharashtra

Answer: Option B


The scientists have discovered bio-decomposer capsule. These capsules when sprayed on crop residue will turn them into manure. This increases soil fertility and reduces use of fertilizers. According to the estimate of the Delhi Government, only Rs. 20 lakhs is required to manage 700 hectares of stubble through this method. This cost includes cost of preparation, transportation and spraying. On October 6, 2020, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that the Delhi Government is to adopt "Bio-Decomposer" spraying to counter stubble burning.
