Abstract:
The growth and development of silkworm larvae and subsequently cocoon productions are greatly influenced by mulberry leaves quality. Nearly 70 per cent of the silk produced is directly derived from mulberry leaf proteins. Hence, silkworm should be fed abundantly with good quality mulberry leaves for the successful cocoon production and high yield of silk. Silkworm is a monophagous insect which feeds only on mulberry leaves. Nutrition improves the growth, development, health, feed consumption and conversion of silkworm thereby improving the economical traits. The present study deals with the supplementation of Inorganic and Organic diet for the growth and development of double strains (FC1 × FC2). Oral supplementation of inorganic tissue salt and organic nutrients. The economic performance of double strains (FC1 × FC2) evaluated based on larval, cocoon, pupa shell weights and Av. shell ratio % relationship of food consumption to larval weight, cocoon weight shell weight, Av. Shell ratio % etc. The observed parameters showed improvement in inorganic and organic when compared to the respective control.
