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 :)

Productivity Measurement

Year 2010 was a good start with Organic Roof . However considering the number of plants and varieties, productivity was moderately good. End of the year (November -December) Retail price on vegetables sky rocketed. I could save my pocket as I did not buy few of common vegetables that is used in preparing dishes.

Below is the Price list of vegetables in one among the prime markets in Trivandrum City - Chalai. In the Price list corresponding to each vegetable I have added yields that I could fetch from my Roof  garden.
