This paper examined the spatio-temporal variation in ericulture activities in Assam and also tried to analyze the reasons for such variation. The observation revealed that the growth of ericulture in Assam has been associated with significant inter-district variation. There is dominance of the districts in ericulture that have relatively higher concentration of tribal population, who are presumably poor and depend much on this occupation for their livelihood along with other agricultural activities. The districts with more concentration of ericulture activities have always remained in the leading positions while the laggard districts have always been in the lower ranks in respect of ericulture activities.
