Organic farming is a form of agriculture that relies on crop rotation, green manure, compost, biological pest control
and mechanical cultivation to maintain soil productivity and control pests.
Since in urban cities limitation is insufficient land for farming, the concept of terrace farming, vertical and container farmings are upcoming trends in urban farming. Here in this blog I will be sharing every single effort and techniques in building my Organic Roof :)

Pests and Insects.

I could never find any of these pests before, but it is quite evident as they have started a habitat in my garden. One way looks good as these living things are satisfying there needs from my garden. But I have to take certain control measures to eliminate those which spoil the plan or the fruit.

This was found on the leaves of Green egg plant.

This bug is seen only on bitter guard plant and was more in number. This bug spoils the leaves of the plant.

No idea on this spotted dark green stuff, looks like the remains of some insect waste, when ever this is visible on a leaf the next day the entire leaf gets spoiled.

Let me call this as an Alien, look at it's antennae

Very interesting specimen, no idea what it is, but if you  look closely this resembles a Human skull.
this is almost sticked to green chilly leaves. the size of this creature would be that of a black pepper.

There was no movement when I took this snap, assume that this could be a dead larvae of some insect.

This is another kind of a pest that is visible only in purple egg plants.>>>

Worm, brown in color found in rose plant. This one is usually found after sunset.
