:: Welcome to SLBC J&K ::

Sericulture continues to be a subsidiary occupation for about 30,000 rural families in the State. Most of these families belong to economically backward sections of the society. Annually about 1022 MT of cocoons are produced generating an income of about Rs. 2026.00 Lac for these silkworm rearers coupled with the annual employment generation to the tune of 3.5 Lac mandays (3.0 Lac on-farm and 0.50 Lac off-farm). The Department has 173 mulberry nurseries spread over an area of 963 Acrs, and 374 mulberry blocks over an area 2215 acres across the State. The nurseries are utilized for production of saplings/cuttings for further distribution amongst farmers to augment area under mulberry and mulberry blocks which serve as leaf reservoirs for the landless and marginal farmers. Annually about 20.00 Lac plants are produced from these nurseries against the potential of 30.00 Lac plants. The Department has well established seed organization and presently about 60% local annual seed demand is met out from the sector.

Role Of J&K State In Bivoltine Sericulture
J&K is the only State of the Country which is at the same altitude in which leading biovoltine sericulture countries of the world lie. It is having climatic edge over the other sericulture states of the country in production of biovoltine silk. Even the sericulture experts of the Japan have recognized the superiority of natural climatic condition in the state favorable for the development of sericulture and for production of high grade raw silk of international standard, The biovoltine sericulture development has been one of the priority sectors of Indian silk Industry and its production is yet to meet the targets. Although India is the second largest producer of silk in the world, but against current domestic demand of 25000 MT of silk considering all varieties, India produces about 17000 MT or raw silk, while rest is being imported from other countries mostly from Republic of China. The production of quality biovlotine silk is still a challenge. The Jammu and Kashmir is the only State in India having enormous potential to produce Biovoltine silk of international grade which can help to reduce the import of Biovolitne Silk in the Country.
Sericulture being one of the traditional agro based cottage industries of the State producing high quality Bivoltine Silk comparable to international quality helps in improving economic conditions of the rural masses and providing employment opportunities in pre and post cocoon activities.

Notable Achievements Registered

  • During the current financial year 2014-15 (ending Nov., 2014), the cocoon production has been achieved upto 773 MT due to the implementation of Centrally sponsored Schemes on incentive basis.

  • J&K State is a mono crop region for sericulture activity occupation. The Department is striving hard to introduce multiple cropping in the State for sustainable sericulture in the State. Results are quite encouraging and during the current year the department introduces multiple cropping throughout the State and the third cocoon crop (autumn crop) is under progress.
  • The Department has envisaged an ambitious vision programme in the form of a document for the next twenty years to cover about five lac farmers in the activity of sericulture to take the cocoon production to newer heights of 25000 MT.
