Abstract:
The silkworm nutrition has a major role to play in the growth and development of silkworm larva, and finally it reflects in the cocoon and reeling parameters of the silkworm, Bombyx mori L. The silkworm double hybrid (CSR6 × CSR26) × (CSR2 × CSR27) was reared on mulberry leaves fortified with aqueous egg albumen solution after third moult onwards. Egg albumen concentrations viz., 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% were tested. 20% egg albumen significantly improved average filament length and raw silk percentage registering 1252.36m and 19.92% as against 1070.52m and 16.60% in control respectively.
