About  Jute plant

These plants take nearly 3 months, to grow to an height of 12 to 15 ft, during season and then cut & bundled and kept immersed in water for "Retting" process, where the inner stem and outer, gets separated and the outer plant gets 'individualised', to form a Fibre.

Then the plant get separated and washed to remove dust from the plant

The fibre after drying is taken to Jute mills, for getting converted to Jute yarn and Hessian /Gunny Fabrics/ bags.

From the Jute, various lifestyle products are being produced and diversified in to various forms, due to R&D support and also due the support by Govt Organisations.
