A critical evaluation study comprising five mulberry varieties viz., S 1708 , MS 5, C 10 , C 6 and M 5 was conducted for their leaf quality through silkworm moulting and rearing using crossbreed (PMxNB 4D2) silkworms. Results revealed that, in moulting tests, silkworm larvae reared on S 1708 mulberry leaves recorded highest larval weight (25.03mg) and moulting ratio (84.96%) and lowest larval weight (17.04mg) and moulting ratio (71.06%) recorded in silkworms reared on C 6 leaves during II moult… CONTINUE READING
