Two rearing performance of bivoltine hybrid viz., NB�SHwhich wasreared first time during the year 2011 and second time 2012 in the months of April-May (spring season) exhibited better performance. The data revealed that single cocoon and shell weight was found to be (1.78 and 1.81, 0.377 and 0.384) in the year 2011 and 12 respectively.
