Abstract: The present study showed the effects of different levels of carbaryl on broiler chicks. Their residual effects are long lasting and the impact on food chains and ecosystems quite huge. This posed as the backdrop for this study. Liver were selected for the histopathological study. The study focused on the impact of different levels of carbaryl on the histopathology of liver because liver is the main governing organ for body metabolism. Twenty broiler chicks were taken for the present study and divided into four groups. One group was taken as control and three as treated groups. Treated groups were fed with three different doses of carbaryl as 15 mg kg-1 b.wt. (low dose), 20 mg kg-1 b.wt. (intermediate dose) and 25 mg kg-1 b.wt. (High dose) for 21 days. Histopathological changes like mild fatty infiltration was seen in low dose treated group but necrosis and focal collection of lymphocytes in the hepatic plates of liver were seen in intermediate and high dose treated groups as compared to control. Study proved beneficial in relating histopathology of liver with exposure to pesticides namely carbaryl.
