A few days ago, according to the tussah production statistics of the agricultural department of Dandong City, Liaoning Province, a total of 2 million acres of tussah silkworms were stocked in Dandong City this year. The total output of tussah cocoons is expected to be 18,900 tons, an increase of 8,000 tons over last year, and the cocoon output value is 785 million yuan, which is 785 million yuan. Last year’s revenue increased by 335 million yuan, and tussah production had a bumper harvest.
In order to ensure a bumper harvest for tussah silkworm production, the city’s agricultural department has taken effective measures to guide tussah silkworm production. The first is to strengthen the planning and scheduling of tussah silkworm production. A total of 27,225 tussah silkworms were stocked in the city in spring and autumn, an increase of 8.9% compared with the plan at the beginning of the year, laying a good foundation for the annual increase in production. The second is to carry out an analysis of the sericulture situation, and issued the “Analysis and Countermeasures of the Dandong Sericulture Industry in 2021”, and issued 2,000 copies of “Measures and Suggestions for Preventing Natural and Pest Disasters in Silkworm Production” and sent them to counties, cities and sericulture departments. In the hands of the people, the silkworms are guided to prevent spring silkworms from low temperature and frost disasters and to prevent and control tussah diseases and insect pests, so as to increase silkworm cocoon production. The third is to strengthen the prevention and control of major diseases and insect pests of tussah silkworms, and guide various regions to successively carry out the prevention and control of diseases and pests such as tussah parasitic flies and carabid pests, ensuring an increase in tussah silkworm production and income.
