Burning plant residues is a practice that some farmers apply on agricultural land after the harvest. It causes numerous harmful effects on the land, environment, climate, and can endanger the lives of people, animals and property. This paper analyzes the legal regulations of the European Union and individual member states in order to find an answer to the question of how to regulate the ban on burning crop residues. Given that a large number of fires occur in the Republic of Serbia every year in the post-harvest period, special attention is paid to the analysis of domestic regulations to find answers to the question of whether this decades-long problem is caused by inadequate legal regulations or whether the existing regulations are not applied properly.
