Keywords:silkworm, mulberry leaves, enrichment, vitamin, economic traits
Sericulture depends on rearing of silkworm on mulberry leaves; for this reason, silk production has
direct relationship with larval growth on mulberry. The quality and quantity of mulberry leaves change due to climatic conditions and field practices. One of the alternative ways of improvement of larval feeding is enrichment of mulberry leaves with supplementary nutrients such as vitamins. Many studies are accomplished on the effects of mulberry leaves enrichment with vitamin on economic traits and biological parameters, and this review is the first trial for organization of all available data related to vitamins for elucidation of this topic of science.
