An experiment was conducted at poultry unit in college of Agriculture Latur, to determine the combined effect of Drumstick (Moringa olifera) and Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) powder on growth performance and economical of feeding. Eighty day- old chicks were divided into four dietary treatments i.e., T1: Basal diet feeding, T2: Basal diet+ 0.5% Drumstick powder, T3: Basal diet+0.5% Lemongrass powder and T4: Basal diet +0.5% Drumstick+ 0.5% Lemongrass powder of combination with four replication and five birds have each replication. Result of experiment showed significant difference (P<0.05) in feed intake, live weight, body weight gain and feed conversion ratio between treatments. The study concluded that addition of drumstick powder at the 0.5 per cent and 1 per cent mixture of Drumstick and lemongrass in broiler diet improved growth performance of broiler and economical and profitable for broiler production.
