Rice straw produced from field is utilized for multiple purposes viz., incorporation in field itself, feeding paddy straw to the animals, burning in the field and thatching the farm houses. The above methods are uneconomical for the farmers and unhealthy for the animals. The new methods viz., composting, mushroom production and new animal feeding is identified as efficient methods for farmers in Cauvery delta zone. Cauvery delta zone includes the entire revenue taluks of Thanjavur, Thriuvarur, Nagappatinam districts numbering 20, five revenue taluks of Trichy districts, two of Cuddalore and one taluk of Puddukkottai districts thus the zone comprises of 28 revenue taluks of the eastern belt of state. All these taluks are benefited by the river Cauvery.
