The studies revealed that mulberry variety V-1 and Ananta contributed towards improving economic traits compared to other mulberry varieties. Silkworm reared on V-1 were found significantly superior in larval weight (33.72 g/10 mature larvae), larval duration (22.15 days), single cocoon weight (1.71 g), cocoon yield per 10000 larvae brushed (17.13 kg), and disease percentage (7.00 per cent) while Ananta showed superior single shell weight (0.36 g), shell ratio (22.31 per cent) and cocoon filament length (847.00 m). Variety BER-779 showed lowest performance to key parameters.
