Judging from the surface, current market situation of cocoon and silk moves step by step, overall situation is more realistic, but there are still many uncertain factors.

According to Xinhua News Agency, nearly hundreds of counties in Guangxi have been suffering autumn drought since the second half of this year; therefore, silkworm production will face serious challenges next year.
