The Fibre

Jute is a bast fibre obtained from a tall reed-like plant grown mainly in the Bengal area of East Pakistan
and India. The fibre lies between the outer bark and the woody core.

Preparation of Land:

In November to December, land preparation starts in the low lands. High or medium land preparations
start from January to February.


Generally, sowing takes place from February to April according to the position and condition of the land,
nature of soil and the amount of rainfall.


Jute crop is infested with a large number of weeds. Thus, weeding is required at least 3 times just within a
month and a half from the date of sowing.
