  This study was designed to evaluate the response of broilers to dietary inclusion of phytogenic feed during high rain fall season of Konkan region of India. In this study, A one hundred sixty two unsexed day-old broiler chicks of were enrolled and randomly divided into nine groups with three replications of 18 chicks each. The data were analyzed using Factorial Randomized Block Design. In order to evaluate seasonal impact of research was conducted in summer (S1), rainy (S2) and winter season (S3). The chicks were fed with standard starter and finisher 0 to three weeks and from 4 to 6 weeks of age, respectively during experiment. The control group (T0) fed on basal diet without any supplementation and other eight treatments groups were supplemented with 0.1 per cent FSP (T1), 0.2 per cent FSP (T2), 0.1 per cent GSP (T3), 0.2 per cent GSP (T4), 0.1 per cent FSP and 0.1 per cent GSP (T5), 0.1 per cent FSP and 0.2 per cent GSP (T6), 0.2 per cent FSP and 0.1 per cent GSP (T7) and 0.2 per cent FSP and 0.2 per cent GSP (T8), respectively. The chicks were reared under uniform manage mental condition during three seasons. The study concluded that supplementation of fenugreek seed and guduchi stem powder in broiler diet at 0.2 per cent level showed economically beneficial in rainy season of Konkan region.
