It can be said with confidence that the first meeting of the Halk Maslahaty (People’s Council) of Turkmenistan and the decisions taken at it were a turning point in the development of agriculture. The adopted resolutions became the next step in the improvement of the activities of the agricultural sectors. Farmers enthusiastically decided to increase government procurement prices for agricultural products. For example, now for one kilogram of a cocoon they will pay 25 manat, if the product turns out to be selective, then get 30 manat per kilogram. This is a very high price and good support for enriching the family budget. After all, silkworms tend to do this along with other occupations – caring for cotton, wheat, etc. That is, everything that will be received from the surrender to the state of the cocoon is an additional income. And the arithmetic here is simple. If you take 10 grams of silkworm and care for it normally, then you can rest with each gram of 4 kilograms of cocoon. If we assume that all the products handed over will be of medium grade, then it will be possible to gain 1000 manats per month or more. After all, exactly 30-40 days is required for a full cycle of silkworm care. If we consider that there are tenants who take care of 20, 30 or more grams of silkworm, then the income of these families will be much higher.
The increase in purchase prices determined the number of villagers willing to care for the silkworm. The good for this created a good feed base. Care is being taken in accordance with the requirements of agro- technology for perennial mulberry trees, every year new seedlings are planted along the roads, on the banks of the irrigation systems, along the edges of the cotton and wheat fields. All this is a guarantee that the feed will be enough. And the results of the new season have shown that this is the case.
Silkworms are distributed free to those who wish, the tenant does not pay anything for food either. So doing this business is beneficial in all respects.
