Mulberry foliage constitutes the sole food for silkworm, Bombyx mori L. and thus has been supporting the silk industry since time immemorial. The success of this industry is largely determined by leaf yield potential and leaf quality of mulberry. Therefore, it is important to develop superior mulberry varieties which can adequately suffice the need...


... The main goals of mulberry breeding are to increase the output of high-quality cocoons and to make mulberry leaves more palatable to silkworms. These objectives are dependent on a number of quantitative properties, such as leaf retention capacity, leaf size and weight, total biomass, pest and disease resistance, and tolerance to abiotic stresses like drought, salinity, and cold stress (Rafiqui et al., 2022) [43] . The majority of the leaf yield component features are regulated by both additive and nonadditive gene activities in mulberry. ...
