Joint efforts of the Sericulture department employees and cocoon rearers have led to a significant improvement in the quality of cocoon in the State, Jammu & Kashmir Agriculture Minister Ghulam Hassan Mir has said.

Speaking at a cocoon auction at Aloocha Bagh, the Minister emphasized that the industry stakeholders should carry on with their efforts in future in order to earn the State a status of country's quality cocoon production hub.

The Minister said that the government has laid stress on the production of high quality cocoon and has initiated a number of steps to give technical aid to the rearers to boost the quality as well as quantity of cocoon produced in the State.

The Sericulture department needs to introduce more firm steps to reach out to the rearers in remote areas with enhanced technical assistance, he said.

Mr. Mir stated while the average cocoon rate in the State prevailed at Rs. 200 per kg prior to his assuming the charge of the Agriculture Ministry, now it has gone up to Rs. 450 per kg.

He said that during the auctions, quality cocoon gets sold like hot cakes and added that the day's auction earned the highest price of Rs. 640 for one kg of quality cocoon.

While the Minister called on the rearers to make use of latest equipments for cocoon rearing and for further betterment of the quality, he assured them that the department would extend all possible help for the purpose.

He instructed the Sericulture Director to train the rearers en bloc in hot dryer techniques so that they can use the technique for drying cocoons and thus rear better quality cocoons.

The cocoon production in the State has gone up by many times and the department is looking forward to produce around 320,000 kg of cocoon this year as against 208,000 kg produced during last year, he added.
