dc.description.abstractCommercial poultry production in Chandanaish Upazilla, Chattogram is low. The low level of poultry production is improving due to adopting biosecurity measures and modern husbandry practices. A study was conducted among 85 poultry farmers in the Upazilla with the use of questionnaire to assess their knowledge of biosecurity and poultry husbandry. The findings showed that 60.0% of poultry production was rural while the rest were backyard (semi commercial) poultry. About 64.7% of poultry kept were under extensive management. Biosecurity was poor as 92.9% of respondents did not have footbath or hand wash disinfection; 70% would throw away poultry litter in the refuse dump; 12% would use the poultry litter as manure while 11% would sell out the litter. In addition, 64.7% of the poultry farmers obtained their rearing stock from the live bird market and other unknown sources while only 35.3% obtained theirs from the hatchery. The findings of this study showed that the low level of commercial poultry production in Chandanaish Upazilla might be due to the poor husbandry practices undertaken by the farmers. It is recommended that government should train poultry farmers on biosecurity, disease prevention and the adoption of modern husbandry practices suitable for the traditional poultry production system.en_US
