Abstract :

Mulberry ( Morus alba L., cv. S1) is an important economical crop plant in sericulture and it grows under a wide range of ecological condition. It holds a special place as a major foreign exchange earner. India secures second position for the production of raw silk in the world, which is short about 30% to fulfill the home requirements. The reasons for this deficiency as well as low quality of raw silk are, however, generally attributed to build up of the diseases of mulberry and silkworms, inadequate employment of improved culture and rearing practice. Recent studies have confirmed that eco-friendly biological agent homeopathic medicine- Aakashmoni 200C, prepared from the funicles of Acacia auriculiformis A. Cunn mixed with water @ 7.2 mg/ml, was applied by foliar spray once daily for 15 days @ 10ml/mulberry plant was highly effective in ameliorating mulberry diseases like root-knot [ Meloidogyne incognita (Kofoid & White) Chitwood], leaf spot [C ercosporam moricola (Cooke)], powdery mildew [ Phyllactinia coryl ea (Pers.) Karst], mosaic disease (mosaic virus) and tukra disease [ Maconellicoccus hirsutus (Green)]. It also improves the growth of silkworms, shell weight, effective rate of silkworms rearing, sex ratio percentage and egg laying capacity of mother moth which commercially increased silk production without disturbing biosphere. Keywords: Homeopathic medicine-Aakashmoni 200C, control, mulberry disease, and sericulture
