Abstract

Leaf moisture content and moisture retention rate are important qualitative parameters from the point of young age silkworm rearing. In the present investigation relative moisture loss from tender leaves of five selected mulberry varieties viz. S36, S54, DD, V1 and M5 from Shimoga district were evaluated. Differences among the five varieties with respect to the leaf moisture retention capacity/moisture loss are included in this study. Based on the values recorded, variety V1 showed higher retention rate at different hours of preservation compared to rest of the varieties. The lowest rate was recorded from M5 variety.
