A field experiment was conducted during 2016 to study the influence of nano zinc application on mulberry and cocoon productivity at College of Sericulture, Chintamani. The experiment consisted of seven treatment combinations with three replications (RCBD).Field experiment recorded significantly higher shoot height (96.63cm), number of branches/plant (8.47), number of leaves/ shoot (18.60), number of leaves/ plant (157.15), leaf area (96.90 cm2) and leaf yield (0.46 kg/plant) were recorded in nano zinc oxide of 50 ppm as foliar spray. The net returns per hectare of mulberry was more (Rs.1, 53,083.492) in treatment nano zinc oxide 20 ppm foliar spray. The nano zinc fertilizer was found to be cost effective with higher B: C ratio (2.93) as compared to ZnSO4 fertilizer used in experiment which recorded B: C ratio of 2.43.

Key words: Growth, Yield, Mulberry and Nano zinc.
