Tussar silk produce to multiply by this year end

Jharkhand which emerged as the largest producer of tassar silk in the country last year with a production of 150 tons is all set to double its production capacity this year.

The state plans to produce about 300 tons this year by the dint of involving tribes and other locals in the region. This way, Jharkhand will be able to increase the number of its traditional silk rearers to around 65,000.

Production of commercial cocoon undertakes three multiplication stages like nucleus, basic and commercial seeds. The Jharkhand handloom, sericulture and handicraft department does not deal with nucleus seeds and only involves the process of multiplication from basic to commercial seeds.

The request made by the department to independently produce nucleus seeds was turned down by Central Silk Board (CSB).

However, much later in 2007, the idea was successfully implemented, producing about 15 lakh commercial seeds.

Presently, the state reserves around 20 lakh nucleus seeds, a part of which will be utilized in June-July, 2008, for the production of five to six lakh basic seeds.

In this ongoing year, Jharkhand is expected to produce about 50 lakh commercial seeds from the basic seed quota of 2.5 lakh provided by the CSB.

All in all, by the end of December 2008, commercial cocoons in Jharkhand are likely to produce about 300 tons of tussar silk.

Besides, weavers will also have the opportunity to stock a part of these commercial cocoons to spin and weave silk products in the future.
