Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out at Central Sericultural Research and Training Institute, Pampore, Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) during spring, summer and autumn, 2018 to study the performance of 24 bivoltine silkworm, Bombyx mori L, foundation crosses (12 Oval & 12 Constricted) under temperate climatic conditions. The rearing was carried out under uniformed laboratory condition by adopting standard method. These 24 bivoltine silkworm foundation Silkworm, Foundation cross, Temperate, Evaluation index crosses (FC) were evaluated for their performance in eight metric traits viz., fecundity (No.), hatching (%), yield per 10,000 larvae by number and by weight (kg), single cocoon weight (g), single shell weight (g), shell ratio (%) and pupation rate (%). The performance of foundation crosses varied from season to season since the parental races involved in these foundation crosses have different origin with specific characteristics. The data generated was analyzed statistically and subjected to multiple trait Evaluation index. On the basis of the evaluation index (E.I) values ranking constricted FC’s viz., SK-6 × SK-7, Pam-117 × APS-4 and Pam-117 × SK-7 performed well in all the three seasons with E.I above 50 and SK-7 × Pam-117 performed well in autumn season only. In case of Oval FC’s viz., CSR-27 × Pam-114 & CSR-50 × Pam-114 along with their reciprocals performed well and recorded E.I above 50 in all the three seasons whereas CSR-27 × CSR-50 & APS-5 × Pam-114 recorded E.I above 50 in spring and summer only. CSR-50 × APS-5 and its reciprocal were found superior in performance only in autumn season. Based on their performance in all the three seasons, these foundation crosses will be utilized for the development of bivoltine silkworm double hybrid suitable to temperate region of J&K as an alternate for ruling CSR double hybrid.
