Avian (Poultry) Production, 2nd Revised And Enlarged Edition

By Sapcota D, D. Narahari and J.D. Mahanta

The book has been authored by 30 well experienced academia to match the syllabi in vogue prescribed by the Veterinary Council of India. In addition, we believe that it has also been useful to postgraduate students of Poultry Science and candidates appearing for JRF, SRF, ARS and NET examinations. Further, this book has also been prepared for the students of the Courses: Poultry Production & Business Management (PPBM), B. Tech, B.Sc Poultry Science and Poultry Science diploma. The title is quite comprehensive and includes updated information on topics dealt with. The unique feather of this book is that at the end of each chapter there is a Question Bank with Answer key so as to help the students for self testing and prepare for the examinations. This book also contains best quality photographs, figures and illustrations to reflect the course contents and explain the subject. We do hope that the book will be appropriate use for the students in particular and teachers, scientists and farmers in general.
