    The study was undertaken to examine the economics of rose cultivation, backward and forward linkages in rose production and identify the constraints to rose production and marketing using primary data collected from the Krishnagiri district of Tamil Nadu. The results showed that there was an impressive growth alongwith high instability in the area under rose cultivation in most of the major rose growing districts of Tamil Nadu during the year 1999-2000 to 2006-07. Although, the rose cultivation requires high establishment, cultivation and marketing costs, the cultivation of rose was generating impressive and equitable returns to the farmers. The farmers were also efficient in rose cultivation. Further, the production system was generating good employment opportunities for farm family as well as agricultural labourers especially for female workers. Although, some inbound and outbound logistics and pre-trade agreement were practiced, there is no effective value chain in the rose production... >> Category: Agriculture

Article: Those Little Bugs That Cause Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) - Comment by: jennifer owen - 2015-02-17

This article was very interesting. I have known I had a UTI for a while but all the doctor did was dip a stick in it which didn't show any infection. I insisted he send it away and has come back as a bug in my urine. In the absence of "caring" doctors these days its helpful to be able to check symptoms.

Article: Seed Production of Carrot - Comment by: Padmakumar - 2015-02-12

In my roof top vegetable garden I planted carrot seeds in several sacks on 15th September 2014 and have not been able to harvest anything yet, as the plant leaves are healthy green. I have only used organic manure i.e deer droppings from the local zoo. Could you tell me when to harvest e.g is there any tell tale sign like withering or drying up of the leaves? Another thing I noticed is that the plant leaves are almost immune to pests and other insects. While in all the nearby plants I have had to use boiled and cooled tobacco leaves organic concoction as a pest repellant the carrot plant didnt need any. What makes these carrot plant leaves so sturdy and pest free?
