Abstract:

The treatment comprised S. platensis mediated TiO2NPs at different concentrations of 25, 50, 75, 100, 125 and 150 ppm was diluted from the stock solution. The Double Hybrid silkworm (CSR6 × CSR26) × (CSR2 × CSR 27) were fed with mulberry leaves treated with S. platensis mediated TiO2NPs. The application of mulberry leaves treated with S. platensis mediated TiO2NPs influenced silkworm economic parameters. The S. platensis mediated TiO2NPs at the concentration of 50 ppm treated mulberry leaves fed to silkworm which recorded increased mature larval weight (4.34 g), cocoon weight (2.24 g), shell ratio (26.26%), silk filament length (1455 m), filament weight (0.36 g), denier (2.22) and reduced renditta (5.17 kg) as compared to control.
