In­dia is the num­ber one pro­ducer of silk in the world for which there is a huge de­mand both in the na­tional as well as in­ter­na­tional mar­kets. Dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties of silk are reared based on cli­matic and geo­graphic con­di­tions of which only four namely Tas­sar, Eri, Mul­berry and Muga are the prom­i­nent ones. Tas­sar and Muga are wild va­ri­eties of silk cul­ti­vated by silk worms fed on or­gan­i­cally grown trees. Bi­har, As­sam and Chat­tis­garh are the three States where Tas­sar and Muga are pro­duced.
