Abstract: A biological experiment was conducted to find out the influence of dietary supplementation of Sodium diformate (NDF) at 0, 0.05, 0.10, 0.15 and 0.20 per cent level and oxytetracycline at 0.02 per cent level on the intestinal histo-morphology of commercial broilers in environmentally controlled housing system. The result of the experiment revealed that dietary inclusion of sodium diformate had significant influence on the intestinal villi length of broilers reared in environmentally controlled housing system. Formic acid and their salts are well known to improve productivity by acting against pathogens, decrease pressure on the bird’s immune system, which makes more nutrients available for productive functions such as growth. The double sodium salt of formic acid, having the same antimicrobial properties of formic acid reduces the impact of pathogenic bacteria in the gut of broilers and thereby improved the production performance.
