Abstract:
Data on profile characteristics of farmers, priorities for adoption, household nutritional security, gender issues, socio-economical contribution and constraints involved in rearing Giriraja chicken, collected from 600 respondents in Bagalkot district of Karnataka was analyzed. Majority of the respondents were middle aged, women, literates, nuclear families with average family size of 5.64 and belong to other backward classes. Majority of them were marginal farmers followed by small farmers with agriculture and animal husbandry as primary and subsidiary occupations, respectively. The overall adoption behavior of Giriraja chicken was medium with significant (p<0.0001) difference in change in flock size. Non availability of Giriraja chicks at nearest place, unawareness about proper brooding technique were the major constraints and training on Giriraja chicken rearing, regular chick supply, provision of low cost feed supplements on subsidy and extending mini-incubator facilities to the farmers at subsidy cost were the major suggestions perceived by the respondents.
