Shabir A Bhat, Malik Farooq IL Khan and KA Sahaf
Eight newly evolved silkworm, Bombyx mori L, hybrids were evaluated for their performance in eight metric traits viz., fecundity, hatching, larval weight, yield per 10,000 larvae by number and by weight, single cocoon weight, single shell weight and shell ratio (%). The data generated were analyzed statistically and subjected to multiple trait evaluation index. Four hybrids viz., SK28 × SBNP1, SK6 × SBNP1, NB4D2× SH6 and SK30× SBNP1, exhibited better performance during summer season.
