Dr Ashesa Kumar Kar imparting training

General Manager District Industrial Center Subarnapur had organised a 15-day entrepreneurship development program. I joined the programme as a resource person and imparted training to the budding entrepreneurs of the district. The animal husbandry sector has enormous potential for self-employment generation. Subarnapur is notable for its surplus  egg and meat production. The poultry industry is growing rapidly in Subarnapur district. Egg production in Subarnapur district is more than double of the national average and more than three times the state average. Discussed with trainees about opportunities in the animal farming sector and  also about various subsidy schemes of the government. Some budding entrepreneurs expressed their interest in EC broiler farming. Several EC broiler farms have been established in this district during the past year. Because of its high profit margins and low labour requirements, EC poultry farming is gaining popularity.
