Abstract: This experiment was conducted to study economic value of Dried Tomato Pomace (DTP) in broiler chickens diets in the form of completely randomized design. For this purpose, 160 days old Ross 308 broilers were distributed into 16 floor pens and reared for 42 days. A basal diet was formulated according to NRC recommendations for starter (0-21 days) and grower (22-42 days) periods. Then, the basal diet was also, supplemented with 8, 16 and 24% DTP, resulting 4 dietary treatments were prepared including control group. The results showed that feed conversion ratio between treatments containing 8 and 16% of DTP compared to control group had no significant difference (p>0.05), but the highest (worst) feed conversion ratio were recorded for birds fed diets supplemented with 24% DTP (p<0.05). Comparison of the cost for 1 kg meat showed that the use of DTP up to 16% in diet reduce production cost.
