The effect of the water, soybean meal, sucrose in silkworm artificial feed on silkworm rearing were tested so as to provide a basis for the development of silkworm artificial diet. Results showed that the powder artificial diet which adds 1.9 times water can improve the weight of the silkworm larva and cocoon shell. The extruded soybean meal added in artificial diet obtained higher performance if compared with ordinary soybean meal. The artificial diet with 45% extruded soybean meal is relative economy. The sugar could promote the silkworm chrysalis weight, but had no effect on the cocoon shell weight.
