Poultry Innovations in Manipur

Experts at the Foundation for Environment and Economic Development Services (FEEDS) are thinking out of the box, to introduce new ways to increase the income of poultry farmers in Manipur.

They have assisted the Krishi Vigyan Kendra near Imphal, to conduct training programmes for farmers (who have traditionally reared chicken and ducks) in rearing Australian Emus and Turkeys.

Turkeys are already fetching between Rs 200 and Rs 250 per kg in Imphal,” said N Muhindro Singh, veterinary specialist.

Poultry farmers in Manipur suffered huge losses three years ago, because of an outbreak of bird flu. Emu has a much higher disease-resistance capacity than other poultry, which renders Emu rearing a less risky proposition.

FEEDS itself is a success story in its own way, today has a wide spectrum of activities including 70 hectares of tea plantation, 80 hectares under cardamom, and a sizeable area under medicinal and aromatic plants.

At least someone has not forgotten the North East. Hope it inspires more such efforts.
