Yasir Ali, Sajjad Ahmad, Hussain Ali, Muhammad Younas and Fazli Amin

The present research work was carried out at the Pakistan Forest Institute to studied the response of two Bombyx mori L. races (Bulgaria Chinese and Japanese) verses two different cultivars (Chinese Evergreen and Japanese Early) of mulberry in vitro condition with 25+2 oC, 70+10% RH at district Peshawar during 2019. In the study focused on weight and size comparison of full grown larvae, sex ratio, mortality and economic parameters of the cocoon on 2 different mulberry cultivars. The highest mean weight and size was recorded in Japanese race while lowest was noticed in Bulgharia Chinese on both mulberry cultivars (Japan Early and Chinese Evergreen). Similarly in percent mortality, the highest mortality was recorded in Japanese race whereas lowest was observed in Bulgharia Chinese race. Highest male individual was recorded in Bulgharia Chinese and lowest was recorded female. While in case of Japanese half of male and half of female was counted. In economic parameters highest length, diameter, with floss weight of cocoon and without floss weight of Japanese race coccon recorded on Japan Early as followed by Chinese Evergreen, Similarly, in case of Bulgharia Chinese highest economic parameter of cocoon was recorded on Japan Early and lowest was observed when fed with Chinese Evergreen.
