Effect of foliar spray of micronutrients on the larval development and cocoon characters of silkworm bombyx mori



Effect of foliar spray of micronutrients on the larval development and cocoon characters of silkworm bombyx mori



Indian Journal of Sericulture 21-22: 1-6, 1982



The influence of micronutrients on larval development and cocoon characters of silkworm (B. mori L.) was studied making use of a bivoltine race Kalimpong-A for assessing the quality of leaves fed to silkworms during 1976 for 2 seasons. The results on feeding trials indicated that mulberry leaves sprayed with micro-nutrients did not have any detrimental effect on larval development and cocoon characters. Silkworm larvae fed with Mg (5.0 kg/ha) sprayed leaves tended to give better cocoon yield (401 kg/ha) and cocoon weight (1.54 g) as compared to control (1.4 g).
