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 III

It was a real struggle to grow a new variety of tomato plant. This tomato bigger in size and so gets attracted by either rodents, birds or insects. After loosing around 15 tomatos finally planned to cover each one with polythene  cover. But poor tomatos were ill-fated and was attacked by caterpillar.

Black caterpillar found inside the polythene cover.
Just one worm and spoiled all the tomatoes in a bunch.

Caterpillar created the maximum damage to the fruit,
while hiding inside teh cover unnoticed.

These are the outcomes.

Another worm found in green chilly leaves. they hide inside
 the folded leaves.
One among the most interesting worm found in snake gourd
4-5 worms hidden inside the stem. leaves getting dried soon
looked all through the stem and could find that the worm
pierced either from the bottom part of the stem or through
the roots. worms made tunnel kind of passage from the
bottom of the stem to halfway towards the top.
