In sericulture, a number of practices are taken up which involve calculation of the components of chemical fertilizers, formulation of pesticides and disinfectants at different levels and the estimation of quantity of mulberry cuttings renditta requirement of mulberry leaf etc. A software developed by the scientists which can compute these accurately, in no time and will be of great help to the stake holders.

Low and unsteady returns from agricultural crops caused Shri Hanuman Yadav of Gonda district in Uttar Pradesh to take to sericulture. Backed with technical intervention from REC, Gonda and support from the DOS, his returns from seri-activities increased significantly in a short span of time. The authors narrate his success story.

To know the optimum plant density and geometry under manual or mechanized mulberry cultivation, an experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design with six mulberry plantation geometry and different plant density per hectare. The different spacing included 60 x 60 cm, 90 x 90 cm, three paired row systems, and one mono row. Leaf yield was significantly higher in 60 x 60 cm spacing compared to all other treatments. By the third year leaf yield in (90+180) x 60 spacing came very close to that in 60 x 60, although there was a significant difference between the two. However, comparatively cost of production per kilogram of leaf was less and rearing parameters and cocoon characteristics were superior in the former than in the latter. Overall the results indicated that, under specific plant density and geometry, plantation in wider spacing and especially in paired row system is advantageous for the longevity of the garden, productivity with better quality, cconomization, amenability to mechanization and suitability to shoot rearing.

In West Bengal, highly varying climatic regimes affect the quality and productivity of grainages, calling for suitable measures to address the situation. In the study conducted during all the five seasons at SSPC, Raiganj to explore the possibilities of re-utilizing the non-oviposited female silk moths, the authors have come out with encouraging results. Re-utilization to an extent 70-80% of such nonoviposited female moths would help improve egg recovery and revenue considerably while bringing down the cost of seed production. Source

The concept of community rearing is relatively a new concept in sericulture. Research Extension Centre, Hoshangabad in association with DOS, Hoshangabad and CSR&TI, Mysore propagated sericulture through community rearing in Babai block of Hoshangabad district in Madhya Pradesh during August 2010 exclusively for OBC/SC/ST women through Self Help Groups, which proved a success.
