Increasing population in the country is the challenge to food security as everyone has to be supplied with milk, meat and eggs. In the country, there is huge demand of fodder and concentrate which cannot be fulfilled. Azolla is the best option for the same. It can be cultivated in all areas of our country. The biggest advantage is that it can be cultivated in water with low investment. Feeding of Azolla to the animals is best for body growth, milk production and broiler farming.
