Abstract:

Quail farming fetches income to rural youth. But lack of awareness on self employment through quail farming among rural youth, poor livelihood and non availability of quail chicks in local market were the problems identified among rural youth. Hence demonstration of Japanese Quail rearing among rural youth was conducted by KVK, Kattupakkam and the study was carried out in five villages of Kancheepuram district, Tamil Nadu during 2017-18. All five demonstrations on Japanese quail farming were carried out by the active participation of farmers with the objective to demonstrate the improved technologies of Japanese quail production potential. The improved technologies consisting of scientific brooding of quail chicks, feeding of quality concentrate feed and providing nutritional supplements. The improved technology recorded higher yield of 222 gms at 6 weeks of age than 182 gms at 6 weeks and reduced mortality of 3 per cent than 9 percent. From the data, technology gap, extension gap and technology index were calculated. The improved technology gave higher gross return, net return with higher benefit cost ratio than farmer’s practices.
