Sericulture growing in Iran

Iran ranks eighth in silk farming. China, where sericulture had begun four thousand years ago, on the basis of historical information, remains the main habitat of white cocoon while Iran has been the natural territory for the yellow cocoon, according to an Iranian news agency report. Over the past three years, silk farming has been growing in Iran.

“The sector has an age-old history in Iran and, presently, silk warming is prevalent in more than 50 countries while 95 per cent of silk raw materials belong to Asian countries; China alone accounts for over 80 per cent of global silk production, followed by India,” head of Iran’s Silk Research Centre Reza Sourati Zanjani said in the report.

Head of the Silk Research Centre underlined that “until the year 2001, almost 200,000 boxes of silkworm eggs were produced and distributed in the country, though a downward trend was experienced in silkworm egg consumption as well as in cocoon production.”

He however noted that, over the past three years, an increasing trend has been observed in the industry as the output volume has climbed from 26 thousand boxes to 32 thousand boxes. (SV)
