EFFECTS OF GREEN NANOPARTICLES ON THE PATHOGENIC FUNGI OF SILKWORM: A REVIEW | ¬†UTTAR PRADESH JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY

Silkworm (Bombyx mori) is a useful insect that creates plentiful silk in the shape of a cocoon by swallowing mulberry leaves (Morus alba) during the larval period. Humidity and temperature, for example, have an impact on the physiology of insects. Farmers are also dealing with a significant issue as a result of silkworm sensitivity to various diseases, which is having a negative impact on cocoon output. The purpose of this paper is to examine the management of entomopathogenic fungi utilising various green nanoparticles (NPs) and their effects on larval growth, survivorship, and mass silk production. Previous research on the relationship between environmental conditions, green NPs, and changes in the developmental cycle of silkworms is discussed in this publication. Environmental elements such as temperature and humidity are also important for increasing silk productivity in sericulture. However, enormous economic losses occur in the sericulture industry as a result of these pathogenic fungi and poor environmental conditions.
