Abstract:

Rearing of backyard poultry has been an age old practice of tribal community. But the traditional method of rearing poultry is not remunerative enough to maintain their livelihood. In order to enhance the income from backyard poultry farming, appropriate intervention through training is needed and for that the areas of training need are required to be assessed critically. Keeping in view the above facts, present study was carried out to know the training needs areas of tribal respondents in Kandhamal district of Odisha. A total of 60 respondents were interviewed from 6 villages for data collection. It was observed that training need on feeding management in poultry was ranked I followed by breeding management, disease management, care and management of birds, marketing and record keeping, shed management, and government schemes in poultry as II, III, IV, V, VI and VII, respectively. Under these categories, training to make balanced ration, knowledge about mating with superior breeds, vaccination to prevent disease, care and management of chicks, selling and purchasing of poultry birds and its importance, parameters for construction of poultry shed, and knowledge about loan and subsides were prioritized by the majority of tribal farmers (93.3%, 85%, 71.6%, 87%, 85%, 72% and 95%, respectively).
