Influence of nutritive additive on digestive physiology of silkworm Bombyx mori L.


Ananda Kumar MD, Ann Sandhya Michael

Nutritive supplement “serifeed” in optimum concentration (0.04g) has beneficiary effect on increasing the feeding and assimilation rate in silkworm. The bivoltine hybrid CSR2 X CSR4 and multi-bivoltine hybrid PM x CSR2 fed on 0.04g treated leaves showed an increased macromolecule concentration in midgut and haemolymph tissues. The digestive enzyme activity and conversion efficiency of mulberry nutrients enriched with feed supplement is found to be significantly higher in bivoltine hybrid than the crossbreed. Specifically rainy season has influenced in converting dietary nutrients into silk and yolk protein.
