Every year in Punjab and Haryana, two small Indian states just north of Delhi, 12 million tons of crop residue are burned by rice and wheat farmers, accounting for nearly half of Delhi’s air pollution. Promoting Regenerative and No-Burn Agriculture (PRANA) will transition 250,000 farmers — especially small and marginalized farmers — to regenerative practices using practical and effective methods and technologies. This will mitigate CO2 emissions, save water, and improve the quality-of-life through the establishment of non-burn practices.
