Welcome to the Central Sericultural Research and Training Institute, Mysore - the premier R & D institute par excellence established in 1961. Over the years, it has been recognized as centre of excellence and internationally acclaimed premier research institute for tropical sericulture in South East Asia. Silk has been intermingled with the tradition and culture of Indians.  In fact, it is a way of life for millions!  Sericulture - a rural based, high employment generating, profitable enterprise plays a vital role in the socio- economic development of the country. Also being an excellent foreign exchange earner, today, silk industry ought to excel by producing quality silk to beat the challenges of the changed global marketing trends. 
CSRTI-Mysuru has provided commendable support to enhance silk productivity and quality ensuring generation of higher income for the farmers by developing technologies for mulberry sericulture in the country especially for both traditional (Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana & Tamilnadu) and non-traditional (Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra & Gujarat) states of India. Presently, the campus of CSRTI, Mysore spreads over 135 acres with the mulberry farm of 40 acres. At this Institute, dedicated scientific personnel are working in - well-equipped Moriculture, Sericulture, Sericultural Engineering, Sericulture Extension Economics & Management and Training Divisions in its main campus. Besides, this institute has a large extension network comprising 05 regional research stations and 19 research extension centers/sub-units and two breeding stations spreading across all traditional & non-traditional sericulture practicing states.
The institute has marked a niche as a leading R & D institution on tropical sericulture with its well-developed sericulture infrastructure and strong indigenously developed technological base. Adopting both lab to land and land to lab concepts, it carries out research in different aspects of mulberry sericulture from soil to cocoon production covering all the aspects of on farm activities to cater to the needs of on-farm sector in the sericulture region.
The tropical sericulture technology packages developed by this Institute have in fact revolutionized the cocoon/silk production in the country. Adoption of these packages at farmers level has metamorphosed the very concept of sericulture being treated as a cottage industry par excellence into a full-fledged industry! The improved bivoltine silkworm double hybrid FC1x FC2, mulberry varieties like V1, G4, chawki rearing, shoot harvesting method, package of practices, disease management strategies etc, developed by this Institute have not only given a new dimension to sericulture, but also enabled the country to produce quality silk substantially under tropical conditions.  The productivity and the quality of the silk have gradually increased and in the past five decades reached enormously huge heights.
The extension strategies of the institute encompass participatory, decentralized, holistic, market oriented, information based and demand driven approaches. They have helped in the effective transfer of the technologies to the farmers from time to time. The extension programmes like CPP have changed the very dimension of Indian Sericulture. The Institute with its excellent extension network encompassing RSRSs, RECs and REC-Sub units located in different states, disseminates the technologies developed to the stakeholders. Institute has been granted 26 patents registered with NRDC and 39 products commercialized for the benefit of sericulturists in the regions. 
The institute has also made a dent as a center for higher learning and advanced training on domestic and international front. During the year 2022-23, a considerable number of beneficiaries (2288) were trained on various aspects of sericulture through structured and non-structured courses at national and international level.
The institute has been continuously striving for higher productivity of mulberry varieties and silkworm races and refinement of technologies. In nutshell, the Institute, which has commemorated its Golden Jubilee during 2011, has metamorphosed into a premier R&D Institute, par excellence. The Institute has contributed immensely to the lion's share of the total silk produced in the country with its support to both traditional and non-traditional sericultural states of India.
