Effect of spacing crown height and method of pruning on mulberry leaf yield quality and cocoon yield


Effect of spacing crown height and method of pruning on mulberry leaf yield quality and cocoon yield



Indian Journal of Sericulture 30(1): 46-53



ISSN/ISBN: 0445-7722

A four year research on spacings, crown heights and methods of pruning in mulberry (Morus sp.) revealed that the spacing of 60 .times. 60 cm with a crown height of 40 cm. above the ground level, adopting step up method of shoot harvest (S2 C3 H3) gave maximum leaf yield of 42,247 kg/ha against treatment combination of 60 .times. 30 cm spacing with a crown height of 15 cm, adopting whole shoot harvest every time (S1 C1 H1: control) yielding 40,916 kg leaf/ha. Also, mulberry leaf from same treatment combination (S2 C3 H3) gave maximum cocoon yield against that of control. Increase in leaf yield/ha over control was 3.15%, while the increase in cocoon production was 8.6%. Further widening of spacing over 60 .times. 60 cm. resulted in sharp decline in leaf and cocoon production per unit area.
