  • Burning of residue leads to loss of 100 percent nitrogen, 25 percent phosphorus, 20 percent potash and about 60 percent sulfur.
  • The available biodiversity in the land is exhausted. It also affects the chemical activity in the soil, such as the carbon-nitrogen and carbon phosphorus ratio deteriorates, causing plants to take nutrients.
  • Farmers are becoming dependent on chemical fertilizer, which is increasing the cost of farming.
  • Due to damage in the structure of the land, drainage is not possible due to lack of nutrients available to the plants.
  • There is a loss of organic matter present in the ground. The friendly insect earthworms living on the top surface of the ground are also destroyed.
