Protected cultivation is the technique of providing favorable environmental or growth conditions to the plants. Protective cultivation practices can be defined as cropping techniques wherein the micro-climate surrounding the plant body is controlled partially/fully, as per the requirement of the plant.
The various types of protective cultivation practices have been adopting based upon the prevailing climatic condition. Among them, greenhouse/poly house is extremely useful for Round-the-year vegetable cultivation in temperate condition. Protected cultivation also known as controlled environment agriculture (CEA) is highly productive, conservative of water and land and also protective of the environment.
Protected Cultivation has following advantages
Provides favourable micro climatic conditions for the plants
Cultivation in all seasons is possible.
Higher yield with better quality per unit area.
Conserves moisture thus needs less irrigation.
More suitable for cultivating high value / off season crops.
Helps to control pest and diseases.
Helps in hardening of tissue cultured plants.
Helps in raising early nurseries.
Round the year propagation of planting material is possible.

What is meant by terrace farming?
Availability of fresh and pesticide free vegetables are serious issue now a days. Rooftop Farming allows for a completely organic form of farming. This means it often has no pesticides or insecticides that would normally be found in trace amounts in traditionally farmed produce.
In an accessible rooftop garden, space becomes available for localized small-scale urban agriculture, a source of safe vegetable production. Roof gardens are most often found in urban environments. Plants have the ability to reduce the overall heat absorption of the building which then reduces energy consumption.
In recent year VR international has becomes alternative name for rooftop farming in India.
