Antimicrobial agents are used extensively in order to reducing the enormous losses caused by Escherichia coli infections in poultry industry. A total of 48.67% samples were found positive for E. coli out of which 42.46% were from organized farms and 57.53% were from backyard poultry farm. The results of antimicrobial susceptibility tests showed highest sensitive against Erythromycin (75.34%) followed by Ceftrixone (70.55%), Ciprofloxacin (68.49%), Tetracycline (65.75%), Enrofloxacin (55.48%), Gentamycin (50.68%), Chloramphenicol ((44.52%) and Trimethoprim-sulfamethaxazole (15.07%). The highest antibiotics resistance was seen with Trimethoprim-sulfamethaxazole (65.75%) followed by Chloramphenicol (50.68%), Gentamycin (41.78%), Enrofloxacin (35.61%), Ceftrixone (24.65%), Tetracycline (20.55%), Erythromycin (18.49%) and Ciprofloxacin (14.38%). A multidrug resistance was observed in both organized and backyard poultry farming system however study showed heavy usage of antibiotics in organized poultry sector rather than backyard poultry farming system practiced in and around Ranchi, Jharkhand.
