Abstract: An experiment was conducted at Livestock Instructional Unit of Dr. B.S. Konkan Krishi Vidyapeeth, Dapoli to determine the effect of supplementing cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum) and ginger (Zingiber officinale) powder on the growth performance and economic analysis of broiler chickens. 168 Day-old chicks were divided into six dietary treatments viz., T0: control diet (no additive), T1: Basal diet supplemented plus 1% cardamom powder, T2: Basal diet supplemented plus 2% cardamom powder, T3: Basal diet supplemented plus 3% cardamom powder, T4: Basal diet supplemented plus 1% ginger powder, T5: Basal diet supplemented plus 2% ginger powder and T6: Basal diet supplemented plus 3% ginger powder with four replication and seven birds have each replication. Results of experiment showed significant difference (P<0.05) in feed intake, live weight, body weight gain and feed conversion ratio between treatments. The study concluded that supplementation of cardamom powder at the rate of 1 per cent in broiler diet improved growth performance of broiler and economical and profitable for broiler production.
