Nov '11
Aiming to enhance skills of sericulturists and thereby boost silk production in the State, the Jammu & Kashmir government has launched a series of one-day workshops in association with the Department of Agriculture's sericulture experts.

Inaugurating the first workshop on 'Recent Trends in Development of Bivoltine Sericulture of Kashmir', State Agriculture Minister Ghulam Hassan Mir said there are immense possibilities for generating new employment opportunities in the State through sericulture.

The Minister added that such workshops would help the young and enthusiastic cocoon growers to take advantage of the present-day techniques to raise cocoon production in the State.

Emphasizing on raising the income of the cocoon growers, he said, it would be possible only by enhancing their cocoon production and obtaining better prices for their cocoons.

The Minister stated that the same cannot happen unless the growers, testers and weavers are all well versed in pre and post rearing and management of cocoon.

He said the scientists will meticulously address these issues during the workshop. The workshop was mainly aimed at drawing attention of the people, particularly youngsters, so that the weavers and the industry can advantage from the same, he added.

During the workshop, the sericulturists were apprised regarding the convenient means and latest techniques for silk production.

Besides benefiting the sericulturists in the State, the workshops are also expected to play a vital part in the all round development of silk industry in the region.
