Brief summary about sericulture in Uzbekistan : The silk branch of Uzbekistan has deep historical routes. Recent years, thanks to the government's initiative a purposeful work is going on in the direction of silk goods production increase and strengthening of export potential of enterprises. At this time there are 14 hybrid silkworm egg factories, 3 P 3 -P 1 pure-line egg production stations and 10 specialized sericultural farms producing 30 tons of pure-line seed cocoons and more than 20 millions of mulberry tree seedlings annually. Totally the Republic produces 17-20 thousands tons of fresh cocoons or 6.5-7.5 thousands tons of dry cocoons a year. For this 350-400 thousands of boxes of silkworm eggs (1 box=29 g), 10 silk-reeling factories with an output of 1600 tons are available, but they produce only 800-1300 tons of raw silk/year; 8 silk-weaving factories produce about 2.5 millions meters silk fabric annually. Work on increase of economic potential of the branch is going on at all production stages, starting with increase of fodder basis for cocoon raw materials preparation, cocoon processing and till ready made fabric production, its advertisement and advancement in the world market. Attention is being paid to such problems as braking of economic relations which lead to production decrease. Efforts are made to find ways of solving problems of restoration and development of sericultural industry and small silk enterprises both in scientific and production aspects.
