Motivating women towards growing organic vegetables in terrace

Author(s): N Gayathri and Dr. B Loganayaki
Abstract:
Farming lands are being rapidly converted into housing plots and this causes a severe reduction in crop grown area. Due to migration of people to urban areas, fertile agricultural land has been converted into houses and infrastructures, thus reducing the land for cultivation. The yield of crops has come down due to continuous use of chemical fertilizers. It leads to health hazards, pesticide toxicity effects in human. Organically growing crops in every available space especially organically grown vegetables and greens assumes great significance. This would help in preserving the soil and save the environment from degradation.
