Abstract:

A study was conducted to assess the Performance of Different Breeds which includes Gramapriya, TANUVAS Aseel and Srinidhi under Backyard Poultry farming System in Erode district by covering 30 backyard poultry farmers in T.N.Palayam, Gobi and Anthiyur block of Erode district, Tamil Nadu. Information was obtained on mean body weight at various ages, age at first egg, annual egg production and mortality rate. The result indicated that Gramapriya showed better annual egg production and Srinidhi gained better body weight at 20 th week when compared to other strains. Even though the two strains performed well in productivity, TANUVAS Aseel is suitable for backyard farming system due its better farmers adoption due its external appearance and genetic potentiality. Attempts were taken in 2018-19 to link the results of the strain assessment to the mainstream extension at the district for larger adoption of rural communities.
