Silk (Mulberry variety) Farming

Introduction :

India is the second largest producer of silk accounting for 18% of world production. The Belt of Karnataka and Andhra accounts for nearly three fourth of India’s production of silk. This is called the Queen of all fabrics and silk industry is historically the most important industry of India.

As this industry provides living to millions of marginal farmers, even Govt of India provides lots of support for the development of this industry. Also there is a lot of scope as the demand surpasses supply both for domestic and international market.

Mulberry silk is the highest quality silk you can purchase. It is made from silkworms that are raised in captivity under exacting conditions. It is also the most expensive type of silk.
