Making Modern Poultry Markets Work for the Poor (2009)

    This good practice note by Hare Krishna Deka and Anish Kumar summarise key elements of good practice and lessons learnt from SA PPLPP's support to poultry sector development in India with a focus on small-scale producers. The report looks at the example of a home based broiler farming model that has enabled small (female) producers to overcome commercial poultry barriers. Supported by a public service organization, this initiative also presents the success of the cooperative approach (federated at state level into a producer company) where production and marketing development have been de-linked to minimise producer risks and retain a standard of equity.
