Country may take two years to overcome egg shortage

0 49

Sri Lanka will take at least two more years to come out of the current egg shortage issue, said Gamunu Jayasundara.

He said the main reason for this was the shortage of poultry food due to fertilizer restrictions resulting in the drop in maize cultivation.

As egg laying chicken diminished Sri Lankan companies did not invest to bring new parent birds from overseas as there was a poultry food shortage.

“Now we don’t have a sufficient number of parent birds to increase the chicken population and this will take around two more years to continue the ‘cycle’ and have the right number of birds to lay eggs.
