Abstract

In order to introduce bivoltine races in a tropical country like India, it is necessary to have stability in cocoon crop under high temperature environment. Considering the poor performance of productive bivoltine hybrids during summer season, emphasis was given to evolve bivoltine silkworm breeds suitable to tropical conditions for achieving the primary objective of establishing bivoltine sericulture with quality raw silk among sericulturists. One of the main aims of the breeders is to recommend silkworm breeds/hybrids to farmers that are stable under different environmental conditions and minimize the risk of falling below a certain yield level. Silkworm breeds that are reared over a series of environment exhibiting less variation are considered stable. Therefore, it becomes imperative or essential to develop bivoltine breeds/hybrids which can with stand high temperature stress conditions. Attempts in this direction has led to the development of single and double hybrids tolerant to high temperature
