Uncontrolled dried grass burnings - is it worth risking?
The snow just melted and mass dried grass burnings have already begun in Pskov region, near Polistovsky Reserve. Grass is burning everywhere: on the agricultural fields and along the roads, often very close to settlements, where you can periodically smell acrid smoke.
Why do people burn dried grass? Someone thinks that this procedure will enhance soil fertility, while others believe that in this way they prevent the occurrence of forest fires, and someone just set fire to the grass for the sake of entertainment.
