Summary: As Indonesia is resolved to become the world's biggest producer of natural silk yarn, the government is currently taking stock of the country's natural and human recources needed to develop the natural silk yarn business. There are several large silkworm breeding sites in the Indonesian Archipelago, among which are a 4,000 hectare breeding ground in the South Sulawesi (Celebes) Province, a 400 hectare site in the Central Java Province and a 1,000 hectare site in the West Java Province. A silkworm breeding ground in Sukabumi, West Java Province, produces 150 tons of cocoons annually. This site is successfully managed by Indonesia's largest natural silk yarn spinning mill in Sukabumi. Silkworms of Bombyx mori Linnaeus (Lepidoptera: Bombycidae) are mostly used for the production of cocoons.
