Lok Prakash Verma, Anand Kumar Singh, D Suryam Dora and Neetu Sonkar
Small agricultural lands and Continuous climate change lead to decrease in crop production and poor economic condition of farmers, so need to diversification of farmer’s income source is must for economic security. Backyard Kadaknath chicken production is a good source of money and animal protein because it required low initial capital and fetches high price in market due to its black colour. Finding constraints help in adaptation and production of Kadaknath chicken farming. Constraints were arranged in order by Garrett ranking method. Predator, mortality and high cost of feed and fodder are reported as severe constraints followed by high cost of new flock, shortage of extension services, and lack of management practices and housing system. Lack of breeding stock and marketing knowledge are not much severe for Kadaknath farmers. This study concludes that finding and checking of constraints lead to increase production and adoption of Kadaknath chicken production between farmers.
