Abstract:
A six weeks trial was conducted to study the effect of diets supplemented with garlic and holy basil leaf powder on economics of production of broilers. A total of 280-day-old commercial broiler chicks (Vencobb-400) were randomly allocated into seven treatments with four replicates and each replicate had ten chicks. Growth trial was conducted in complete randomized design. T1 was served as control and fed a basal diet formulated as per [3] standards. T2 and T3 were fed with garlic powder @ 0.5, 1% feed, respectively. T4 and T5 were given with holy basil leaf powder @ 0.5, 1% feed, respectively. T6 was fed with garlic powder and holy basil leaf powder @ 0.5% each. T7 was treated with garlic powder and holy basil leaf powder @1.0% each. The results showed that The relative profit (Rs.) as compared to control (T1) was found only in treatment T6 (0.78), where feed supplemented with combination of 0.5% garlic and 0.5% holy basil leaf powder. Thus, the present study revealed that supplementation of garlic powder and holy basil leaf powder @ 0.5% each in the broilers diet represent the best economic option to local farmers in these research conditions.
