Abstract:

A comparative experiment study was carried out with chawki and direct brushing tasar silkworm on the tasar silkworm’s host plant Arjun leaves. The chawki method was carried out during I and II instars larva followed succeeding instars brushed in common plot whereas, direct brushing method was reared entire life cycles in common block plantation plots. The results indicated duration of silkworm larva was observed four days earlier with reared in chawki method than direct brushing method. Mortality rate of silkworm was found minimum under Chawki method. Tasar silkworm reared under chawki method had higher larval weight as compared to direct brushing method. Similarly, maximum cocoon weight, shell weight and shell ratio was obtained in chawki rearing practices. Hence, the results of present study clearly designate the tasar silkworm rearing with chawki garden during initial stage improves the rearing performance and cocoon characters of tasar silkworm.
