Synopsis Sustained and good quality silk production largely depends on the type and race of the food plant which is ultimately reflected in quality of cocoons. In recent decades, extensive studies have been conducted to produce quality cocoons by exogenous administration of biologically active substances, growth promoters and feed supplements. Notable parameters of cocoons, which determine the quality of raw silk, include shell weight, silk ratio, silk weight, waste weight, filament weight, reliability percentage, denier and renditta etc. Innovative techniques based on biotechnological methods and genetic engineering have further equipped seri-biologists to improve the quality of cocoons and ultimately the silk. Present book deals with in-depth studies related to mulberry genetic resources, development of improved mulberry genotypes, growth and yield parameters of different varieties of mulberry, effects of bio- inoculants, green manuring and FYM on fresh leaf yield of mulberry, and influence of soil quality on mulberry yield, etc. One of the chapters "Chawaki mulberry garden", provides an interesting account of successful commercial silkworm rearing. The present book entitled Moriculture has been painted on a large canvas with broad strokes comprising 19 chapters by experts and researchers delved in their respective fields covering the subject area.
