ABSTRACT The annual photoperiodic changes are the most important factor controlling the reproductive activity in birds. A single subcutaneous implant of a slow-release GnRH analogue induced the seasonal reproductive activity in both sex of farmed ostriches. Significant increase in annual egg production and clutch number compared with control group were observed.

A single subcutaneous implant of a slow-release GnRH analogue induced the seasonal reproductive activity in both sex of farmed ostriches.
