Abstract:
The results of the present study indicated that significantly higher larval weight (48.77g), cocoon weight (1.903g), shell weight (0.439g), shell ratio (23.06%), filament length (846.25m) and raw silk percentage (12.36%) was registered by NB4D2 during spring, however during summer the highest larval weight (37.71g), cocoon weight (1.786g), shell weight (0.326g), shell ratio (18.26%), filament length (772.75m) and raw silk percentage (10.29%) was recorded in SKAU-R-6 breed. Among all the breeds under study pupation rate was observed to be significantly high in SKUAST-28 (92.10%) during spring season, while it was recorded high (94.43%) in case of Nistari during summer.
