Abstract:

Nutrition plays a vital role in sericulture. It improves the quality of mulberry foliage and influences not only the growth and development of silkworm but also the quality and quantity of silk produced. Application of the required nutrient in the required amount to mulberry plant is, therefore, very essential for the successful silkworm growth and cocoon production. The present study was undertaken to work out the effect of organic manures (Vermicompost, farm yard manure-FYM, Silkworm rearing waste, Neem cake) alone and in combination with biofertilizer (Azospirillum) on mulberry (var. China white) and its impact was studied on rearing performance of silkworm hybrid (FC1× FC2). Larval growth, Cocoon and post cocoon parameters were significantly more when silkworm larvae fed on leaves from mulberry plant raised through the application of Vermicompost @ 4kg/plant + Azospirillum (4.0g/plant). Further FYM@ 4kg/plant + Azospirillum (4.0g/plant) found next best with respect to economic traits of silkworm. Consequently the present experiment revealed that Vermicompost @ 4kg/plant +Azospirillum (4.0g/plant) are responsible to produce good quality mulberry leaves and also for bring into being enriched yield with high quality of silk filament. Thus, application of Vermicompost + Azospirillum (T6) could form a suitable organic manure and biofertilizer combination from overall sericultural point of view.
