M. Shamsul Haque, Zakaria Ahmed, Firoza Akhter, M. Asaduzzaman, M. Motiur Rahman and M. A. Hannan    

Abstract: Recently six varieties of jute were released from Bangladesh Jute Research Institute where two were from C. olitorius (OM-1 and OF-390) and four from C. capsularis (C-718, C-2035, C-2005 & C-2143). These varieties were compared for their retting properties, morphological differences as well as their physical properties of the fibre extracted from them. Among them, white fibre with fewer cuttings and “A” and “B” grade fibers were obtained by retting from C-718 and OF-390 varieties, respectively yielding higher quantity of fibers. Other varieties found inferior in quality in all aspects.
