Certificate in Poultry Farming CPF ++

Poultry Farming has been one of the most important subsidiary occupations of the farming community in India. It is a remunerative business both in rural and urban areas due to the requirement of small space, low capital investment and quick return throughout the year. It has a significant role in the eradication of malnutrition and poverty as well as eliminating un- and under-employment among the rural masses. However, due to the lack of a modern and updated method of poultry farming, the farmers are practising their own way which is unproductive and not commercially viable. The
present programme aims to impart knowledge and skill to make Poultry Farming a viable business. The target group includes Rural Youth, Women, Farmers and Entrepreneurs.

  • develop and strengthen Human Resource by infusing/imparting knowledge and skill in Poultry Farming through Open and Distance Learning (ODL) Mode;
