Abstract:

An research experiment was carried out at Main Research Station, UAS, Hebbal, Bangalore to study the role of organic and inorganic fertilizers applied to mulberry on the cocoon parameters of silkworm. The cocoon weight (1.40 g and 1.50 g), shell weight (0.299 g and 0.325 g), shell ratio (21.44 and 21.70 %), silk productivity (4.46 and 5.23 cg/day) and cocoon yield (48.19 and 53.96 kg/ 100 DFLs) were significant maximum when chawki worms fed with S36 and late age worm with M5 leaves and worms fed with leaves raised through application of recommended 20 tones compost + 300: 120: 120 kg N, P and K/ha/year through fertilizer.


Keywords: Feeding schedules, Mulberry, Silkworms, Bio fertilizers, Organic and inorganic fertilizers, Cocoon parameters.
