Brazil is today the most important silk producer outside the traditional Asian silk-producing countries. It is the world’s third largest silk producer after China and India. Raw silk production in the country in the silk year 1999 reached some 1,554 tons, 2% of world production. The declining trend of production continued in 2000: the raw silk output was 1,389 tons, 10.6% less than in 1999. The principal areas for sericulture are the States of São Paulo and Paraná, together accounting for about 96% of the country’s silk output. Some sericulture is carried out in Santa Catarina and Mato Grosso do Sul, but the climate and soil in these areas are not as favourable.
