An experiment was conducted at poultry unit in college of Agriculture Latur, to determine the combined effect of Drumstick (Moringa olifera
) and Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus
) powder on growth performance and economical of feeding. Eighty day- old chicks were divided into four dietary treatments i.e., T1
: Basal diet feeding, T2
: Basal diet+ 0.5% Drumstick powder, T3
: Basal diet+0.5% Lemongrass powder and T4
: Basal diet +0.5% Drumstick+ 0.5% Lemongrass powder of combination with four replication and five birds have each replication. Result of experiment showed significant difference (P<0.05) in feed intake, live weight, body weight gain and feed conversion ratio between treatments. The study concluded that addition of drumstick powder at the 0.5 per cent and 1 per cent mixture of Drumstick and lemongrass in broiler diet improved growth performance of broiler and economical and profitable for broiler production.
