Abstract:

Agriculture and allied sector is the backbone of Indian economy. Agriculture and allied sector not only provides food and nutritional security but also create job opportunity for two-thirds of the population. Among various agriculture and allied farming, Poultry farming is one of the most efficient components of the farmer’s economy as it provides eggs, meat, feathers and manures with small capital investment and fewer workforces. India stands 3rd and 5th position in egg and meat production with annual production of 64.45 billion eggs and 2.47 million ton meat respectively. However, the present per-capita availability of eggs and meat is 63 and 2.2 kg per annum respectively, is lesser than the recommendation of the Nutritional advisory committee, ICMR i.e. 180 eggs and 10.8 kg poultry meat per annum. To minimize the gap between demand and supply, there is a need of proper training and scientific farming technique (Proper feed supply, Vaccination and better management). The present study aims to evaluate the impact of training on the livelihood of rural poultry farmers under backyard poultry farming.
