MP govt launches ‘Kadaknath’ app to market rare chicken breed

March 29, 2018

Recently, the breed virtually became a bone of contention between Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh with both the States staking claim over its nativity.

The Madhya Pradesh government has come up with a mobile application to market rare chicken breed — the “Kadaknath” — whose black meat is in high demand for its nutritious content and purported medicinal properties.

The “MP Kadaknath” mobile app aims to connect poultries that sale the breed with people from other parts of the country.

“Through this app, people can place orders for Kadaknath chicken from anywhere. Availability of Kadaknath chickens with the cooperative societies can also be seen on this app. The app would provide marketing platform to 430 members of 21 societies in Jhabua and Alirajpur districts and that more societies are being added to this platform.
