Poultry Farming has been one of the most crucial subsidiary occupations of the farming community in India.
Poultry Farming is a remunerative business in rural and urban areas due to small space requirements, low capital investment and quick returns throughout the year.
It has a significant role in the eradication of malnutrition and poverty as well as eliminating un- and under-employment among the rural masses. However, due to the need for a modern and updated farming method, farmers are practising their way, which is unproductive and not commercially viable.
