"Our expense will increase if we don't burn stubble; our land will not be ready for sowing and the cropping season will get delayed", said a protesting farmer, and added that government should pay them compensation to cover their losses.

He has claimed that a suitable alternative to stubble burning would be composting of the crop residue. The Punjab government's demand for a bonus of Rs 100 per quintal from the Union government has not been accepted.
