Abstract

Poultry sector provides quality products that are purchased by vast population in Pakistan. It contributes 6.6% in agriculture by generating employment for about 1.8 million people. Due to high cost of synthetic fertilizer and demand of organic food the farmers are more interested to adopt organic farming techniques. Poultry waste which contains large scale accumulation of litter and manure components can be used for crop production with chemical fertilizers as it is less expensive, available nearby farms and a good source of nutrient improvement to restore degraded soils. This study was aimed at examining the existing supply chain of poultry waste in Sindh province based on information collected by visiting the poultry farms and discussions with poultry farm managers or owners about supply practices of poultry waste. In addition, this study was conducted to investigate the yield impacts of poultry waste application as a fertilizer. Hyderabad district was selected as study area and wheat was taken as target crop for conducting study. Linear multiple regression model was applied to examine the yield response of wheat for both farmer groups to different factors of production. Results revealed that farmer’s applied poultry waste received more wheat and profits per acre than poultry waste non-users.
