 Outreach and extension

A Project on Rural Poultry Production for Livlihood security in Goa has been undertaken which has been funded under Rashtriya Krishi Vikash Yojana (RKVY), Govt. of India. Besides A project on “Economic upliftment of tribal community by introduction of improved livestock and poultry germplasm in the tribal area of Goa”. Has been initiated under Tribal subplan Programme funded separately by ICAR in which I am a CO-PI. Through this project “ Rural poultry farming” was promoted in the village Amona under the Taluk Bicholim in Goa to ensure direct benefit to individual farmers or farmer family belonging to scheduled caste.
