    A seminar was conducted by Sow and Reap Agro Private Limited and Kosher Climate Private Limited in Jajapur, Narayanpet district to educate farmers about the dangers of excess methane gas release in paddy fields. The farmers were urged to take steps to minimize the release of methane gas by using proper fertilizers and natural manures to get better yields.

    District Agriculture Officer (DAO) John Sudhakar explained how methane gas can become toxic and does not allow proper oxygen to reach the paddy crops if corrective measures are not taken at the right time. He advised the farmers to adopt proper soil conservation methods to drastically reduce the use of chemical fertilizers. This will help preserve the valuable cultivable land from becoming acidic and toxic.
