Research in the field of agriculture has thickened very rapidly during the core of this technology revolutionized decade. Many of these compounded changes have bestowed to new innovative technologies like recycling the residues which are left in the agriculture field and agro based industries. This residue recycling is lending agriculture to maintain the soil fertility and reduce the cost of inputs. The new trend comes into the picture of compost is seriwaste. Besides silk production sericulture industry also produces large amount of waste which goes unutilized in our country. This organic waste can be profitably utilized for composting which has a lot of market potential as well as possible fertility impact over the cultivation land. Hence, this paper provides an overview of Seriwaste and its advantages.
