Abstract

Harvesting jute plants leaving 1``, 2", 3", 4", 5" and 6" from the basal portion in the soil and retted separately, produced significant effect on the production of jute cutting and fibre quality. Harvesting plants leaving 4"-6" from the soil eliminated cutting completely and produced A-grade fibre. But harvesting plants leaving 4"-6" of basal portion in the soil apprehend loss of fibre weight.
