J&K adopts extra measures to revive silk output
Oct '10
The state government of Jammu and Kashmir has asked its Sericulture Department to take necessary steps to triple the production within a season and ensure the revival of silk production in the state to restore its lost status.

The State Agriculture Minister – Ghulam Hassan Mir said that, a lot needs to be done to upgrade the quality of cocoon seeds, enhance high-quality cocoon production and also the overall silk production. Sericulture should be developed as a full-time activity, especially, for those who rear cocoon.

The Minister assessed the state's sericulture activities and expressed his contentment over the inspiring results generated by the department.

He said that the state should emerge as a prospective cocoon seed producer. He further added that the moderate temperature of the state enables it to tap its sericulture resources.

Apart from giving importance to quality and production, the Minister pointed out that the Government should take steps to extend the fundamental as well as technical facilities to those who rear cocoon so that a higher number of people can be employed in this industry.

According to him, the activity has a very high prospect of offering employment to the job seekers. The government, therefore, needs to implement such a system which is beneficial for the cocoon rearers.

The Minister has urged the research scientists and the Central Silk Board, to work full time for producing better quality seeds by using the modern technology in the State, as is the case in Japan and China.
