Muga & Eri cocoon production register consistent growth
Dec '10
The Central Muga, Eri Research and Training Institute (CMERTI) located in Lahdoigarh in Assam's Jorhat district revealed that the muga and eri cocoons have shown a consistent rise under the cluster development programme that was implemented in Assam since 2008-09.

The average muga seed cocoons' production had registered a rise of 16.4 percent in 2008-09 and 41.7 percent in 2009-10. It recorded an increase of 35.3 percent in the current fiscal. Likewise, production of muga reeling cocoons in muga clusters too registered a growth of 39 percent in 2008-09 and 43 percent in 2009-10, while its production for the initial two months of current fiscal was seen to be 14.3 percent above the set target.

Unfavourable climate had adversely influenced the summer seed crops this year and last year, which created severe shortage of seeds in the following commercial crop season during both the years in the months of October and November.

The cocoon production under the eri cluster programme crossed the set targets by 6.7 percent in 2008-09, 10.8 percent in 2009-10 and 31.2 percent in 2010-11. Similarly, mulberry cocoon production under the mulberry cluster promotion programme too increased beyond the benchmark by 7.4 percent in 2008-09, 19.1 percent in 2009-10 and 12.8 percent in 2010-11.
