India's silk board chief stresses need to boost production

Silk production in India needs to be increased as inadequate production is leading to silk imports from China, Japan and Korea, Central Silk Board (CSB) chairman KM Hanumantharayappa said recently while inaugurating a sericulture fair in West Bengal. The fair in Behrampore attracted silk farmers from Birbhum, Murshidabad and Nadia districts.

The fair was organised at the campus of Central Sericulture Research and Training Institute (CSRTI) in Behrampore, according to a report in an east Indian English-language daily.

Sericulture research institutes in the country have developed farming implements, which will be marketed at a subsidised rate, said Hanumantharayappa.

CSRTI has developed a new variety of Bivoltine breed for production of quality silk, said CSRTI director Kanika Trivedi. (DS)
