Abstract:
The present study was conducted on sixty broiler farmers randomly selected from four blocks of Azamgarh and Varanasi districts of Uttar Pradesh, to analyse the structure and functioning of contract farming in broiler production, and to identify the factors which propel the farmers to enter into contract broiler farming. The information was collected with the help of a pre-tested structured interview schedule. The results revealed that cent-percent farmers adopted “formal production-marketing contract” and all the three Integrators prevailing in the study area having all most similar contractual arrangement with difference in price of input services, growing charges and growing cost. The contract farmers typically provide land, housing, equipment, labour and electricity. While Integrators provide day old chicks, feed, veterinary services, supervisory services and transportation facilities to the farmers. Working capital support in the form of inputs and risk reduction are the major motivating factors for the farmers to enter into contract broiler farming.
