Abstract: The investigation was carried out at Temperate Sericulture Research Institute (TSRI) Mirgund, SKUAST- K, in the year 2015. Amongst various manures (FYM, Dalweed, vermicompost, poultrymanur, silkworm litter) tested T2 (Dalweed) seemed to be the best manure influencing the various parameters of mulberry seedlings right from the germination upto growth of seedlings. By popularizing this manure, the pressure on other manures especially FYM can be reduced to great extent besides providing the stakeholders different options of manure. This will also help in proper disposal of wastes got from different agricultural activities and other water bodies in most eco-friendly and economically viable manner. Therefore, in this article we explore the effect of different manure treatments on the germination success and development of seedlings of the mulberry crop.
