halt crop burning to avaoid air pollution spike

Thailand must ban stubble burning by farmers to improve air quality, the head of a leading agricultural body said Monday, after a spike in dangerous pollution left millions needing medical treatment. The kingdom suffered dire air quality earlier in the year, with Bangkok and the northern city of Chiang Mai ranked among the most polluted cities in the world on some days in April.

    Crop burning is a major contributor to air pollution, particularly in agricultural regions. To avoid a spike in air pollution, it is crucial to halt crop burning and promote alternative methods of crop residue management, such as composting or using it for bioenergy production. This would not only improve air quality but also contribute to sustainable agriculture practices and mitigate climate change.
