3.1.9. Information relating to outputs and outcomes Output and Outcomes

1. Five most significant outputs (2017-20)
i. Developed and evaluated 6 new varieties /crosses suitable for rural/backyard poultry production under tropical conditions and low input regime.
ii. Evaluation of Dried Distillers Grain Soluble (DDGS- rice and maize) and Rice Gluten Meal (RGM) as alternate poultry feed resources to augment the feed inventory, to assess their safe inclusion levels and effect on performance of poultry. Probiotic and synbiotics, viz., L. acidophilus, Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus amyloliquifaciens, Bifidobacterium bifidi, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, along with Mannan oligosaccharides (MOS), betaine and vitamin E; and their combinations were evaluated for their efficacy on poultry performance and welfare.
iii. Standardization of processing techniques for converting low value spent hen meat into high value ready to eat functional poultry meat products having reasonably extended shelf life.
iv. Evaluated welfare friendly layer cage housing systems on the behest of Bureau of Indian Standards, GoI (FAD-5).
v. C:N ratio for aerobic composting of poultry excreta using various carbonaceous materials like paddy straws, saw dust, plant leaves and grasses during different seasons was standardized to be 25:1 to 30:1. Ammonia and hydrogen sulphide were reduced to the level of < 4ppm and carbon dioxide reduced to half in purified bio-gas produced through dilution, acidification and carbonization (DAC) technology while, methane concentration increased to 79.89%. Besides, the process resulted in production of quality manure.

2. Five most significant outcomes (2017-20)
i. The newly developed crosses are dual purpose with almost double production potential in comparison to their native parents.
ii. Rice DDGS (2883 Kcal/kg ME and 44-46% CP); RGM (2850Kcal/kg ME and 50 % CP) and Corn DDGS (2800 Kcal/kg ME and 27% CP) can be incorporated safely in poultry diets @ 15%-17.5% (using protease enzyme), 10% and 20% respectively, thereby replacing costly soybean and corn as protein and energy sources. Use of probiotic and synbiotics like Lactobacillus acidophilus @106cfu /gm feed, Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus amyloliquifaciens @ 106 cfu/gm and mannan-oligosaccharides (MOS) @1% in diet; only MOS@ 0.2%; MOS @0.2% and Lactobacillus acidophilus at 106 CFU/g; Saccharomyces cerevisiae at 0.1% level along with 100 mg vitamin E/kg diet; 0.2% MOS along with 106 cfu/g Bifidobacterium bifidi and betaine @ 0.25g/kg and 0.5g/kg in poultry diets resulted in saving in feed cost by 3.5-5%.
iii. Functional poultry meat products like poultry meat wafers, finger chips and meat bites, developed using low-value spent hen meat have been commercialized under licensing agreement and start-ups have been launched.
iv. Welfare of layers has implications on 250 million caged layers in the country. The report along with recommendations for minimum floor space allowance for caged layers have been communicated to FAD-5 (BIS) and DAHDAF for making suitable amendments in the BIS standards for caged layers in the country.
v. Efficient utilization of pure poultry excreta through aerobic composting employing DAC technology was standardized. The technology is under process of filing patent.
3.1.10 The process of the selection of the private sector party (concessionaire etc.) By Expression of Interest (EoI)/ First come first served basis/ Requests from members of public.
3.1.11 All payment made under the PPP project Payments are made by the private parties to the Institute as per the terms & conditions of the memorandum of understanding or licensing agreement signed between the Institute and the parties in the light of the relevant guidelines issued by the ICAR HQ.
