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 :)

First time planted Banana tree

India has multiple varieties of cultivation grown throughout the country. Dwarf Cavendish and Robusta are well-adopted commercial bananas owing to high yield, ability to withstand wind, short duration and high economic returns/unit area. Rasakathali is significant in commercial production, especially for excellent quality fruits. Nendran is an important banana in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. 

Within the courtyard if you can grow a banana plant/tree it will not give you much shade or much fruits.
One plant takes six to ten months to fetch you with fruit.

In Malyalam language raw friut is called 'Vazhakka'
it is called 'Vazha Pazham' went it is ripe.

Banana fruit with the flower, every part of it is used for varied dishes.

In between the petals of the flower it also has sweet (honey).
