Agriculture is the backbone of India. Nowadays, farmers are facing many economic problems. Hence there is a solution for our farmers to come out of their economic crisis. Sericulture is one of the best ways to earn more money and it can provide self-employment and remunerative returns. The existing method of silkworm rearing requires more development. This project provides a complete protection to the farm and every process has undergone development with the help of electrical and electronics components. It facilitates farmers by adoption of automation in temperature and moisture control, feed supplement. The growth of silkworm involves three stages. These stages require different temperature and moisture level. This is established with the help of temperature and moisture sensors and PIC16F877A micro controller, since the total process is controlled. Various processes like feed supplement, protection and medical safety for silkworm are provided by automation through this project. Power splitter is used and is driven by motordriveL2930. With the help of input keys, inputs are given. This project could be carried out both automatically and manually. This project will help farmers economically so that that they may not spend more time in the sericulture farm.
