The impact of muscardin and flacherie disease on the biochemical contents at larval, pupal and adult stages of bombyx mori have been examined during the seed crop and commercial crop season, which accounts for the seasonal differences. Table 1 and 2 have shown that the commercial crops has registered its supermacy over seed crop seasons as far as the concentrations of the biochemical contents like free amino acids ,Protein , lipid , carbohydrate , moisture and ash at different stages of life cycle of Bombyx mori in respect of said disease. It appears that the commercial crop season provides better dietary and climatic condition to mulberry silkworm than the seed crop season.
