Article
Sericulture, as an agro industry occupies an important position in Indian economy owing to its employment generation, production and exports. Indian ready to wear / use silk products are popular all over the world because of the craftsmanship, art and variety of finished products to suit the versatile need of mankind. Because of these inherent stre...

The production of quality mulberry leaf and subsequent production of quality silk is hampered due to the incidence of various insect pests. The present study analyses the population dynamics of Diaphania pulverulentalis (leaf roller), a serious pest of mulberry in a sericulture seed farm. The results indicated that maximum population buildup of the...

Full-text available
The seasonal differences in the environmental components considerably affect the genotypic expression in the form of phenotypic output of silkworm crop such as cocoon weight, shell weight, and cocoon shell ratio. The variations in the environmental conditions day to day and season to season emphasize the need of management of temperature and relati...

Abstract Food consumption and utilization is influenced by various biotic and abiotic factors. Under different environmental, feeding, and nutritional conditions, and with ingestion of the same amount of mulberry leaves, the silkworm shows significant difference in its ability to digest, absorb, and convert food to body matter. Here, influences of...

The sporadic pebrine differs from other silkworm diseases as it is transmitted both horizontally and vertically. Large numbers of alternate hosts are reported for Nosema species including some of the mulberry pests. As a part of the pebrine disease-monitoring programme at P3 basic seed farm, Mysore, South India an attempt was made to study the seas...
Article
The accumulation of savings and later on conversion in to capital formation is one of the critical and important factors for the development of any industry. Sericulture as a biological industry is contributing a lot to farmer's income levels in the rural areas. The sericulture enterprise is proved to be the major income and savings contributing en...
Article
The concept of chawki rearing centres is gaining ground in recent days among the sericulturists, as it saves considerable time and labour, besides ensuring scientific and robust rearing of silkworms in the initial stages. The authors dwell upon the need and advantages of having a certification system to put the CRC concept on sound footing and ther...
Article
A systematic analysis after every training course is a must to achieve the intended overall goal and objectives of the training programme. To study the effectiveness and quality of the training programme, an evaluation was conducted by interviewing 160 trained respondents. Trainees were asked to assess the performance of the faculty and according t...
Article
Training programmes for extension personnel working in the field of sericulture and farmers practicing sericulture are very much essential for their capacity building in order to reduce the yield gaps that exist between the potential and actual yield in the field and also between the farmers. For the purpose, different training programmes have been...

Full-text available
Influence of oral administration of folic acid to 5th instar silkworm larvae of a popular Indian bivoltine hybrid (CSR2 x CSR4) was studied. Folic acid solution spraying on mulberry leaf and feeding to silkworm significantly improved larval weight, silk gland weight and growth rate. Higher larval and silk gland weight subsequently improved the econ...
Article
For assessing the quality, effectiveness and impact of the training programmes among different categories of trainees, the data were generated in 14 batches constituting 240 trainees over a period of 3 years. The trainees were post - classified into different categories (40 trainees in each category) based on education level and experience in seric...
Article
The influence of oral intake of an antibiotic (Norfloxacin®) through mulberry leaf at two concentrations (50 and 100 ppm) on the feed conversion efficiency parameters of silkworm hybrids, viz. bivoltine (CSR2 × CSR4) and crossbreed (BL67 × CSR106), was studied. Feed consumption data showed that the food consumption of antibiotic-treated batches was...
Article
Studied the influence of various nutritional and environmental conditions giving stress generally to Indian cocoon producers during last age of silkworm rearing on cocoon and post cocoon parameters. Significantly better cocoon and post cocoon characters were observed when worms were reared under optimum temperature and humidity conditions and provi...
Article
Silk production in temperature countries is declining steadily due to climatic restriction imposed on mulberry leaf availability.
Article
The awareness on the yield and income levels of bivoltine rearing in comparison to the multivoltine is necessary for its practice at farmers level. Hence the present study was carried out in Karnataka with the main objective of studying the cocoon yield and income levels of both cross breed and bivoltine (CSR) rearers. Primary data from 120 randoml...
Article
The article details the bivoltine sericulture training program, conducted by the Central Sericulture Research and Training Institute, Mysore, India. The program is to develop trained manpower for enhancing national productivity and profitability in sericulture. The program covered various technologies related to mulberry cultivation, silkworm reari...
Article
The performance of any development-oriented organization is directly related to how well its members are equipped with new information. Department of sericulture is one such organization which is very much keen on developing its human resource through various HRD activities. Bivoltine training programme is the major training, which is being imparte...

The silkworm, Bombyx mori is a poikilothermic insect and it is the main source for production of silk. Environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, light, air, feed quality as well as quantity have intimate influence on its growth and development. The consumption and utilization of food in insects facilitate the understanding of the adaptab...
Article
India, with its annual production of about 15,857 tonnes during 2000-01, is the second largest producer of raw silk around the globe. However, over 96 per cent of the mulberry raw silk produced in the country is of multivoltine variety, which is lower in productivity and quality compared to that of bivoltine silk produced in sericulturally advanced...
Article
Full-text available
The study evaluated the influence of feeding different maturity leaves i.e., tender, medium, coarse and mixed leaves of three different maturity during late larval stages of new bivoltine race . The data were compared with shoot feeding and control batches in which conventional feeding method was followed. The most of the larval and cocoon characte...

Full-text available
The impact of antibiotic (Norfloxacin) administration ,at different concentration (50 ppm and 100 ppm) on commercial characters of bivoltine and the cross breed race was studied. The result indicated that antibiotic administration with different concentrations significantly improved the rearing and cocoon parameters like larval duration, larval wei...
Article
Full-text available
Food consumption and conversion efficiency of new bivoltine hybrids (CSR2CSR4 and CSR2CSR5) were studied under restricted feeding levels (10, 20 and 30% less quantity of mulberry leaves). The data were compared with a control fed with standard quantum of feed as per the recommendation. The nutritional indices parameters i. e. ingests, digesta, appr...
