Urbanites to be made aware of organic farming

Giving stress on terrace farming, initiative is being taken to make urban populace aware of the techniques of cultivating organic crops in rooftops.

A unique initiative has been taken to set up a model rooftop organic farming facility at Bidhan Sishu Udyan in Ultadanga, where the West Bengal Agriculture department recently organised a three-day Jaibo Krishi Mela. If everything goes as planned, then students from different schools and colleges will be brought to have a look at rooftop farming at Bidhan Sishu Udayan where organic farming will be carried out with technical support of the West Bengal Agriculture department.
