Formatted abstract
This report described techniques and methods suited to the selection and development of suitable silkworm and mulberry varieties, and the cultivation and harvest methods that enable a sericulture industry to be commenced in Australia. It is recommended that this information be provided to potential silkworm farmers and that the silkworm and mulberry varieties and harvesting equipment developed be made available to this new rural industry. It is also recommended that the breeding and development centre established at the University of Queensland, Gatton, be funded to support the new sericultural industry.
