Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during 2017-18 to study the effect of seri-waste bio-digester application to mulberry on cocoon parameters of silkworm.  Mulberry grown with the application of 50 per cent seri-bio-digester effluent + 25 per cent bio-digester effluent + 25 per cent Recommended Dose of Fertilizers (RDF) significantly enhanced the Effective Rate of Rearing (ERR) (98.28 per cent), maximum larval weight (38.63g/10) and cocoon parameters viz., single cocoon weight (1.86g), pupal weight(1.53g), shell weight (0.30g), shell ratio (16.60 per cent) and single cocoon filament length (915.10g) followed by 25 per cent seri-bio-digester effluent + 25 per cent bio-digester effluent + 25 per cent vermi compost + 25 percent compost with larval weight (1.86g), pupal weight (1.53g), shell weight (1.53g), shell ratio (16.34 per cent) and single filament length (911.68m).  The study revealed that, application of seri-waste bio-digester effluent to mulberry along with other organic manures increased the rearing and cocoon parameters providing all the essential nutrients for mulberry growth compared to application of sole inorganic fertilizers and in turn it contributed for quality cocoon production.  Utilization of sericulture waste generated during mulberry cultivation and silkworm rearing leads to generate additional income, entrepreneurship development in sericulture and value addition in turn contributing to achieve sustainability in sericulture.
