The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of SSG, a water-soluble organic phosphorus compound with synergistic factors on the performance of layer growers. A total of 240 Bovans layer growers were divided into two as control and treatment groups. Each group had 10 replicates with 12 birds per replicate. The control group was given basal diet as per the breed standards and in addition to basal diet the treatment group was supplemented with SSG @ 15 ml per 100 birds in morning 6 hours drinking water for a period of 7 days. At the end of the experiment, treatment group showed significantly higher (P< 0.05) body weight gain, better feed efficiency and economics over the control. It is concluded that supplementation of water-soluble organic phosphorus compound improved the growth performance in layer growers.
