Review Paper on Different Aspects for Management of Cotton Stalk Residue
In today’s competitive world there is a need for faster rate of production in agricultural. As we know Agriculture
is the backbone of India. In India almost all farmers facing problems of labor shortage. Day by day labor wages are
increasing. In India Cotton crop is cultivated in large amount. After yielding of cotton, the main problem face by the farmers
are to cut the cotton stalk. Nowadays what farmer did is pluck the cotton stalk manually collect at one place ,wait till the
stalk get dry and after that burn that crop. Disadvantage of burning the crop is, the nutrients that are released after burning
are usually washed away. Soil declines in productivity after burning. Crop residues remaining in the field after the harvest
are removed by burning the stubble or leaving the stalks on the field surface, to be mixed with soil either directly or by
mechanized chopping. So our aim is to design and fabrication of such a machine which can cut and crushed of cotton stalk.
After crushing the crushed crop spread on the farm. So that this crushed crop is dumped into the soil and it used as an
organic compost. So productivity of soil will increased.
