Abstract:
The study was conducted under Uttar Pradesh Council of Agriculture Research funded project at C. S. Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur to evaluate the leaf quality of 10 selected mulberry clones viz., BC-259, K-2, RFS-175, S-1,S-146,S-776, S-1635, S-1531,Tr8 and UP-1 through phytochemical analysis. It was apparent from the results of analysis that total proteins, total sugars and amino acids were high in tender leaves followed by medium and coarse leaves. Total proteins, total sugars and amino acids were high in S1635 leaves followed by K-2 and S-146 and total proteins and total sugars were low in UP-1 leaves. Moisture contents were high in tender followed by medium and coarse leaves. Moisture content and moisture retention capacity were significantly high in S1635 and lowest in CM leaves
