Jharkhand to have two elite silk cocoon centres

The sericulture department in the state of Jharkhand is planning to set up two elite cocoon seed stations, in a bid to increase cocoon seed production. Jharkhand has made numerous strides in production of silk and is now the leading producer of silk, in India.

Cocoon seed production which stood at 0.5 million in the previous fiscal year will now shoot up to one million, after setting up of these two stations, alongside which, it will also be able to supply commercial quality elite cocoon seeds.

Jharkhand is a leader in Tussar silk production and this project will help to fill up the demand-supply gap in the country. Current demand for Tussar silk stands at around 26,500 tons, while supply of the same touches only 18,500 tons in the country.

Giving details and speaking exclusively to Fibre2fashion, Project Manager of Jharcraft, Ms Mohsina Khatoon said, “The two elite stations are planned to be opened at Chakradharpur (West Singhbhum District) and the other at Seraibad in Santhal Pragana Belt and the estimated cost of building each elite station is Rs 10 million.”

Giving reasons for building these new silk stations, she said, “This is because of the reason that Central Silk Board had given assurance of setting up and managing two elite seed stations, but none of them are functional, so Jharcraft decided to start two elite stations to fulfill the demand of tussar silk”.

She added by saying that, “The elite seed station in Jharkhand will help not only the state but also other states by providing good quality seeds and will also act as a model elite seed station for other states, by producing four quality of seeds; Elite seed (P4, Nuclease seed (P3), Basic seed (P2) and Commercial seed (P1) cocoons.
