NSSO to preserve silkworm hybrid eggs
Jun '11
The National Silkworm Seed Organisation (NSSO) is committed to meet the enormous demand for Bivoltine Silkworm hybrid eggs, according to M. Sathyavathi, member of Central Silk Board. She said this while speaking at the foundation laying ceremony for a new Silkworm Seed Preservation Centre in Mysore.

She said that the seed preservation centre is a nodal centre of NSSO, which provides a variety of services to the sericulture sector.

The new state-of-the-art cold storage plant at Mysore will have a high capacity structure to preserve excess eggs. The plant is being set up under the 12th Five Year Plan which had envisaged construction of an additional full-fledged silkworm seed preservation centre with a capacity of 40 to 50 lakh disease free layings (DFLs) of the silkworm.

Rakshak, a pesticide developed by Central Sericultural Research & Training Institute (CSRTI), Mysore, was also released on the occasion. Speaking about Rakshak, CSRTI Director SMH Qadri said that the pesticide to preserve the silkworm seed was the second product brought out by the Institute.

“Rakshak is a quality product which has no side effects, and is cost effective. It will help sericulturists because of its environment-friendly characteristics,” he added.
