A line of fire runs across the field as farmers burn wheat stubble in Shangqiu, Henan province, June 14, 2013. Despite the government ban, farmers in China often burn crop stalks left after the harvest to clear the fields for the next planting. In 2008, the Chinese government also warned farmers not to burn crop stubble in an effort to improve air quality in and around Olympic host cities.[Photo/Xinhua]
