What is Sericulture?
Dr Vijay Prakash Sharma: "Sericulture or silk farming is the cultivation of silkworms to produce silk. Silkworm larvae are fed with mulberry leaves and after the fourth moult, they climb a twig placed near them and spin their silken cocoons. This process is achieved by the worm through a dense fluid secreted from its structural glands, resulting in the fibre of the cocoon."
