Impact of crop residue burning, Khushboo,12th class, Adarsh Senior Secondary School

The impact of crop residue burning includes the emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs) that contributes to global warming, increased levels of particulate matter (PM) and smog that cause health hazards, loss of biodiversity of agricultural lands, and the deterioration of soil fertility.
Crop residue burning contributes to poor air quality and imposes a health burden on India. Despite government bans and other interventions, this practice remains widespread. Here we estimate the impact of changes in agricultural emissions on air quality across India and quantify the potential benefit of district-level actions using an adjoint modeling approach.
