Abstract:
The study was conducted during 2020-21 to analyze the profile characters and knowledge of bivoltine silkworm rearers in Kolar and Chikkaballapur districts of Karnataka state. Thirty silkworm rearers practicing bivoltine silkworm rearing were randomly selected in these two districts. The major findings revealed that, the larger number of bivoltine silkworm rearers were middle-aged (53.33%), small-scale farmers (53.33%) with medium income group (43.34%) having small-scale households (43.33%) and studied up to graduation (26.67%). Further, a greater proportion of bivoltine silkworm rearers were belonged to medium level of sericulture experience (46.66%) with innovativeness (47.50%), achievement motivation (50.00%) and mass media exposure (36.67%). Majority of the bivoltine silkworm rearers were having high level of extension agency contact (53.33%) and extension participations (53.33%). Majority of the bivoltine silkworm rearers’ possessed high knowledge (53.34%) followed by medium (23.33%) and low (23.33%) knowledge on recommended mulberry cultivation practices. Similarly, bivoltine silkworm rearers also possessed high knowledge (46.68%) followed by medium (36.66%) and low (16.66%) knowledge with regard to improved silkworm rearing practices.
