Mandoji Mansoor Khan [2] | Sankar Naik.S

Abstract: Mulberry (Morus Spp. ) is an important plant in sericulture industry as foliage constitutes the chief feed for mulberry silkworm (Bombyx mori). Investigation was carried out to evaluate the best mulberry variety from the locally available and grown mulberry varieties for silkworm feeding; based on the biochemical parameters in terms of leaf moisture; carbohydrates and proteins in respect of three mulberry verities i. e. Mysore local; V1 and S1635 particularly grown in Anantapuramu district of Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh. Maximum nutritive values were observed in S1635 (triploid variety). Finally S1635 is the pick of the choice of the varieties studied.
