Sericulture is an eco-friendly agro-based rural cottage industry providing subsidiary employment and supplementing the income of rural farmers especially the economically weaker section of the society. Sericulture is an art of silkworm rearing for the production of cocoons which is the raw material for the production of silk. Silk is the yarn obtained out of cocoons spun by certain species of insects. Silk is the fabric which has fascinated man so continuously over millennia Adoption of new technologies by farmers leads to higher production. The development of sericulture technology itself will not result into cocoon production. The successful practice of sericulture requires adoption of recommended sericulture technologies to get expected benefit of sericulture. The sericulturists have to use different technologies for mulberry cultivation and silkworm rearing. It was generally observed that all the recommended sericulture technologies were not adopted by the sericulturists. As such there is a gap in adoption. Therefore it was felt necessary to identify the gap in the specific technological factors and also efforts needs to be taken to bridge this gap.
