Small scale poultry production systems either in the form of small, semi or fully scavenging household flocks or a slightly larger more intensity unit have developed in a large number of developing countries around the world as a source of livelihood support for the rural poor in the recent years. Poultry farming is a very versatile industry adopting itself to a full time or part time job. The routine operations are so simple, that women, children or elderly persons can easily manage small poultry units. Hence there is a need for improvement in poultry farming in almost every aspects viz. breeding housing, economic feeding and health control. This book is about low cost deep litter type poultry house, and evaluation of low cost deep litter type poultry houses in respect of infrastructure and economics.
The book used before and after scenario to describe domestic production and marketing under varying trade policies with emphasis on poultry businesses in south east Nigeria. What happened with poultry production inputs as policy changes with respect to trade policy in Nigeria were highlighted. There were many agricultural policies whose aim was to increase agricultural production. Some of these policies were either discontinued or abandoned. The book used trend analysis to examine what happened before (1994)and since(2009) the ban. Inconsistent policies over the years affected poultry businesses in the region. Producers are sourcing their input locally and this has implication for other aspects of Agriculture. Production has actually increased but the cost of input and actual price of poultry product was high. Producers have increased their stocking capacity to take advantage of the price incentive. Consumption has also tilted towards local poultry products as against imported poultry products. Import prohibition stimulated domestic production at a low level within the short run. If the poultry ban is sustained , Nigeria might be sufficient in poultry meat in the long run.
The low yield of maize among smallholder farmers in Ghana has increased the need for site specific fertilizer recommendation and integration of available organic and inorganic fertilizers towards increased and sustainable crop production. The prevailing blanket fertilizer recommendation rate is unaffordable for most smallholder farmers. Hence the need for alternative, area specific, more efficient and cost effective fertilizer recommendation. This research therefore focused on assessing the influence of site specific inorganic fertilizer rates and its integration with poultry manure on nutrient use efficiency and maize yield on Chromic Luvisol (Wenchi) and Ferric Lixisol (Mampong) in the transition zone of Ghana. Experimental data from maize (Zea mays L.) grown under various NPK regimes on the two benchmark soils during the 2013 major and minor cropping seasons, were used to parameterize and evaluate the Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer (DSSAT) Crop Simulation Model (CSM). The simulated effects of climate change on maize in the transition zones, were assessed.
The majority of the Kenyan population resides in the rural areas and is characterized by low income and food insecurity leading to high levels of poverty. Poultry production and in particular indigenous chicken (IC) production play a significant role in the economic and social life of these resource-poor households, contributing to cheap source of animal proteins and cash income. Indigenous chickens are present whenever there are human settlements and their economic strength lies in their low cost of production which is a characteristic of the resource-poor rural households. Two of the major challenges facing layer chicken farmers are, the high cost of electric energy used for lighting/heating poultry houses, heating incubators and the cost of supplying sufficient water to the poultry farm. By providing an alternative cheaper source of electricity for the farmers, this inherent costs will be eliminated or reduced hence boosting profits and enhancing growth. This research proposes designing a Hybrid solar and wind electricity generation system to either supplement or replace the electric power from the national grid of a chicken farm.
