Sericulture is an art of rearing silkworms to produce silk. This agro-based rural industry helps our economy and generates higher income and employment. The secondary time series data for 20 years i.e.,1999-2000 to 2018-19 regarding production export quantity and export value were collected from various issues of Central Silk Board, Bangalore, APEDA and FAOSTAT. The entire 20 years was equally divided into two periods. The collected data were analysed with the help of statistical tools like CGR, CV and Coppock's instability Index. The growth rate of silk production in India was found to be positive and highly significant during the period I, period II and overall period of the study. Instability in silk production was increase overall period. The instability in export quantity and export value of silk was also increase in overall period was positive and are found best fitted based on R² and significance of coefficients.
