Research Contributions / Technologies developed
Standardization of Indoor rearing technology- It
facilitates successful domestication of the
wild tasar silkworms.
Tasar Brushing Bag - The
device makes the tedious brushing process simpler and
quicker, there by minimizing the brushing time and is
helpful in maintaining uniformity in larval growth
3. Tasar Spinning Mountage
– Improves the spinning by about 15% over the traditional
4. Rearing of Antheraea mylitta
D. on Cashew nut (Anacardium occidentale)
Rearing of silkworm, A, mylitta
was conducted for the first time ( In Ranchi condition) on
A. occidentale (cashew plant) at state Agriculture
department ,Ranchi, Jharkhand
5. Indoor rearing cum spinning frame
was developed for the young
and for late age silkworm, which restrict the
movement of the worm in tray.
6. Shoot preservation technology-
It helps to improve the moisture content of the leaves.
