Abstract:

Sericulture is one of the important enterprises undertaken by farmers in Karnataka which is giving employment to family labour throughout the year. The study was conducted to examine the growth in area under mulberry, production and productivity of mulberry silkworm cocoon in traditional and non-traditional areas of Karnataka. Secondary data was collected over the period of 20 years from 1998-99 to 2017-18. The study indicated that the growth in area under mulberry was declined in Karnataka as well as India whereas, growth in production was positive in India and negative in Karnataka due to positive growth in productivity both in Karnataka and India. The traditional districts have shown negative growth in area (-1.77%) but positive growth in productivity (1.36%) resulted marginal decline in production (-0.07%). Similarly, the growth in non-traditional districts of mulberry cultivation indicated negative growth rate in both area (-1.48%) and production (-0.56%) while it was positive in case of productivity (1.71%) of silkworm cocoon.
