Sericulture is the process of cultivating silkworms and extracting silk from them. The silkworm rearers use old traditional and crude methods for cocoon production, by obtaining leaves from the local full height mulberry trees grown for timber production.

Sericulture is a very important domestic industry in many countries. India and China are the world’s leading producers of silk. The silk output of these two countries combined accounts for over 60% of the global production.
