Sericulture plays a pre-dominant role in shaping the economic destiny of the rural people. As an agro-based cottage industry sericulture fits very well in India's rural structure, where agriculture continues to be the main industry. The pursuit of sericulture offers gainful subsidiary employment to the rural masses. It is not only labour intensive but also icnome-levelling industry and plays a unique role in transferring wealth from richer sections of the society to poorer sections, who belong to the economically retarded sections of the society. Recognising the importance of Sericulture, Government took series of development measures to popularise it. As a result sericulture has really come of age and is now poised for a great leap forward.
However, Sericulture is not free from problems. There are several production, finance and marketing problems which require immediate attention. The problems of Sericulture operations by using the 'gestalt approach' (Studying the production, Finance and marketing problems together) have been analysed very concisely and cogently.
The book is a modest attempt to examine the growth and development of sericulture industry. The cost and net return analysis of sericulture and the efficacy of the Government schemes including subsidies and incentives in the promotion of sericulture industry also reviewed more precisely.
The book richly contribute towards a better understanding of the strength and weakness of sericulture operations. It also offers some useful suggestions, which are practical in nature to overcome the various current problems and hindrances and to ensure overall development of the industry. The book is sufficiently detailed and is supported by a large number of tables and charts. The entire discussion runs very interestingly. Scholars, students of Commerce and agriculture will find this book of great use. It is, therefore, a welcome addition to the scanty literature on sericulture and forms a distinct contribution to the existing knowledge on the subject.
