Abstract:

The experiment was conducted in the Agriculture Research Station, Hagari, University of Agricultural Sciences Raichur under irrigated condition during 2017-18 to study the application of different groups of organics to mulberry along with urea viz., FYM+ urea (75%+25%, 50%+50% and 25%+75%), Green leaf manure + urea (75% +25%, 50%+50% and 25%+75%) and Castor cake + urea (75% +25% , 50% +50% and 25% +75%), the effects of feeding such leaves to silkworm on the resultant pupal and egg traits was investigated. Worms fed on mulberry leaves obtained by application of Castor cake + urea recorded higher pupal weight (1.34 g), shorter pupal duration (11.38 days), higher rate of moth emergence (93.89%), fecundity (495.94 eggs /laying) and hatchability (95.03%) as compared to control (1.34g, 11.94 days, 91.99%, 470.99 eggs and 93.93%, respectively).
