The study was taken up to assess the factors that influence participation or non-participation of farmers in contract broiler poultry farming (CBF) and non-contract broiler poultry farming (NCBF). The study applied Bennett’s hierarchy of evaluation model by adapting sets of methods - individual surveys, SWOT analysis and Focus Group Discussion (FGDs). The data was collected from 90 contract and 90 non-contract broiler farmers and the FGD with key stakeholders from three districts, viz. Shivamogga, Chitradurga and Davanagere of Karnataka state, India, through personal interviews. The study results revealed that, ‘No market risk’ (100 %), ‘Regular and quick returns’ (87.77 %) and ‘Less working capital required’ (83.33 %) were the top three motivations to participate in CBF. ‘Regular and quick returns’ (94.44 %), ‘High margins’ (88.88 %) and ‘Ease of operation’ (85.55 %) were the top three motivations for farmers to do NCBF.
