Paddy or rice has originated from Asia, where it has been cultivated since 6500 BC and is now adopted in most tropical and subtropical regions. Paddy straw is the vegetative part or the dry stalks of the rice plant left after the grain harvesting. The paddy straws are the agricultural by-products which are may be burned or left on the field after harvesting. The fresh Paddy straws are major forage in paddy-producing areas. Usually, paddy straws make up about half of the yield of paddy crops and have many uses including livestock bedding, fuel, animal fodder, thatching, basket making, etc. The paddy straws are widely used for cattle farms, pig farms, mushroom cultures, and livestock companies.
Paddy straws are burned or plowed under and may cause air pollution or generate leachates. Plowing under can also proliferate fungi, harmful for soil. Giving a boost to the efforts to check the stable burning and the renewable energy sectors, the government has taken various steps and started biofuel plants to convert these straws into biofuel. Feeding these straws to livestock reduces its environmental impact and makes the best use of paddy as both an energy source and a protein provider.
