The Central Silk Board of India has opened a newly built, state-of-the-art, high capacity silkworm egg cold storage plant in Mysore. It was inaugurated by the Union Textiles Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar.

The new plant was necessitated due to increasing seed production targets of National Silkworm Seed Organisation (NSSO) and the leading role southern India has to assume in the coming years in this area.

Up to 1.0 crore disease free layings (dfls) can be comfortably preserved in the plant. In effect, with this plant, the total storage capacity of the Mysore facility would go up to 1.5 crore dfls, the ministry of texties said in a press release.

The size of the cold rooms has been specially designed to suit the requirements of the sericulture industry and to utilize the space effectively for preserving hibernated bivoltine silkworm seed under different schedules, ranging from 4 to 10 months.

The new cold storage plant runs on a Direct Expansion (DX) air-conditioned system, is constructed with pre-fabricated double skinned insulated panel, and is highly energy efficient. The plant is equipped with Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) based data logger system for automatic monitoring of temperature and humidity inside the cold rooms with alarms. All control panel boards are microprocessor-based, connected with the data logger.

Cold Storage Plants are indispensable in silkworm egg production system, principally to enable uninterrupted and continuous supply of basic and commercial silkworm seed. The silkworm eggs are preserved in these cold storage plants for short term or long term (up to 10 months) to regulate seed supply, matching the demand. (GK)
