Abstract:
Poultry keeping is being practiced by majority of the poor and marginalized rural households as one of the promising subsidiary enterprise all over India. It is a proven enterprise all over the world due to its adaptability to varied agro-climatic conditions, low investment per unit, rapid growth rate and short generation interval. Under the existing production systems, farmers are struggling to improve their backyard poultry productivity and sustainability owing to many reasons. Hence present study was done with the objective to find out the knowledge level of the backyard poultry farmers and their determinants. The present study was conducted in three purposively selected districts. Two blocks were selected out of which 50 respondents were randomly selected. Total 300 respondents were selected for the research study. The study indicated that majority (39.33%) of the respondents had high knowledge level regarding housing management followed by 35.67 per cent had medium level and 25.00 per cent had low knowledge level. It was also found that majority (39.00%) of respondents had medium knowledge level in feeding management followed by 34.67 per cent had high knowledge level and 25.33 per cent had low knowledge level. The extension agencies, public and private organisations, NGOs and various self –help groups etc. should concentrate on these variables for bringing about improvement in knowledge level of backyard poultry farmers.
