Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during 2011–16 in different locations in Kalimpong hills, West Bengal to study the integrated effect different organic manures with FYM on growth attribute characters existing mulberry variety BC259 (Morus alba L.). This experiment was also extended to check its effect on performance of SK6´SK7 (Bombyx mori L.) silkworm. Based on data compiled, it was found that, individually, the organic manures like potassium humate (KH), pressmud and mixed oil cake with FYM performed significantly higher on yield and nutritional quality of mulberry leaves than FYM alone. Effect of above organic manures was also found significant result on single cocoon weight, cocoon yield 100 dfls-1 and shell% respectively. Due to higher leaf yield, the higher cost benefit ratio was higher with mixed oil cake than other organic manures including FYM.


Keywords: FYM, potassium humate, pressmud,  mulberry, and silkworm rearing
