Abstract: Silk fibre is protein produced from the silk glands of silkworm. The technique of silk production is known as sericulture. Sericulture is an art of rearing silkworm for the production of cocoons which is the raw material for the production of silk. Silk is the queen of fabrics, starting from the days of Vedas to this day. There are four type of silkworm Mulberry (Bomhyx mori), Tassar (Antheraea paphia), Eri (Philosomia ricini) and Muga (Antherea assama). India is second largest producer of raw silk in the world next to China. The world production of raw silk in 2012 was 1,40,051 MT. China produces 1,15,000 MT and ranked first in the world. India's raw silk production was 20,410 MT in 2010-11 of which mulberry raw silk production was about 16,360 MT. In Maharashtra during 2011-12 area under mulberry plantation was 2,326 ha and production of raw silk was 153.50 MT. During 2012-13, upto February, production of raw silk was 54.38 MT. This trade of sericulture gives self employment and it provides sideline to the other products in the farming. (Economic Survey of Maharashtra 2012-13). Sericulture is an important agro- based cottage industry that helps our economy and generates higher income and employment It is practiced in a wide range of agro-climatic regions. In fact the recent technological advancements have made it possible to practice it on an intensive scale, mainly due to increased profits obtained from it as compared to most of the crops and enterprises. Multistage sampling design was adopted for the selection of district tehsils, villages and sericulture producers. In the first stage, Beed district was selected. In the second stage, Beed, Keij and Ambajogai tehsils of Beed district were selected. Thus from each village, ten sericulture producers were selected. In this way from six villages of three tehsils, sixty sericulture producers were selected. The analytical technique like tabular analysis, functionl analysis, frequency and percentage method were used to analyze the data in the present study. A gross return was found to be Rs 100000 from per hectare of mulberry garden, cost- C Rs 86282.41 from per hectare. In regard to the cocoon production gross return from the one batch was Rs 54075.88. Total cost was Rs 32435.24 from one batch. Net profit from one batch Rs 21640.64. The output - input ratio was 1.67. per kg cost of cocoon production was found to be Rs 218.98.
