    1. In terms of total meat production, India ranks 5th globally with the production of 8.60 million tonnes of meat in 2019-20. In 2020-21, meat production has increased to 8.80 million tonnes (BAHS, 2021). The Indian meat industry has exhibited steady growth in terms of meat production in the last decade as illustrated in figure 1. However, the annual growth rate has not been seen following any particular trend.

    1. India has a large areadevoted to corn production, and average yields ofabout 1.8 tons per hectare are well below those inmany other countries, including the United States(8.0 tons/ha.), China (4.4 tons/ha.), and Thailand (3.2

      India's yield of corm is 1.8tons per ha and is much lower than US (8 tons / ha), China (4.4 tons / ha), Thailand (3.2 tons / ha)

    2. These assumptions could lead the analy-sis to overstate the impacts on demand for corn andsoybean meal, but two factors suggest that theassumptions are appropriate. First, the assumedration shares for poultry (55 percent for corn and 20percent for soybean meal) are significantly belowthe averages (60 percent and 29 percent) providedby integrated producers in the field survey. Theassumptions for egg producers are also below thoseprovided by informed sources. Thus, some scope forsubstitution is already built into the assumptions

      55%-60% corn and 20%-29% : corn : soybean meal

    3. Feed is the single largest cost item in poultry production,accounting for 55-64 percent of variable costs in India

      feed costs contribute to 55-65% of variable costs of poultry rearing in India

    4. Estimates by P.Kumar indicate that coarse grains as an aggregate arean inferior good for food use with an expenditure elas-ticity of food demand in the range of -.10 to -.20.

      expenditure elasticity of coarse grains is -0.1 to -0.2

    5. With the rapidgrowth in estimated feed use, feed now accounts formore than 42 percent of total corn use in India, and, ifrecent trends continue, this share will increase.

      nearly 50% of all corn produced in India is used for feed production

      and 40% of all soybean meal is also used for feed

    1. Different poultry breeds have significantly different rates of parthenogenesis, ranging from 0.16 percent in Barred Plymouth Rock chickens, to 3 percent in commercial turkeys, to 16.9 percent in Beltsville small white turkeys.

      Different breeds of poultry display different rates of parthenogenesis.
