Abstract:

The adoption of mulberry cultivation and silkworm rearing technologies by the sericulture farmers was studied in Krishnagiri district. The data were collected from the selected sample ninety sericulturists with a structured schedule by using personal interview methods. Three categories of sericulturists viz. full adoption, partial and non-adoption were made. Adoption on mulberry cultivation practices was high on mulberry variety (100%), seriboost/ poshan (100 %), spacing (84.44 %) and chemical fertilizer (78.88 %). In silkworm rearing technologies, adoption was high on shoot rearing (100 %), IPM for uzifly (100 %), disinfection (86.66 %), hygienic maintenance (88.88 %), bed spacing maintenance (86.66 %), separate rearing house (82.22 %), bed cleaning (77.77 %), improved mountages (76.66 %), IPM for silkworm diseases (76.66 %) and room disinfection (74.44 %).
