Md. Rafiqul Islam, Suraiya Akhter, M. Nuruzzaman and A. K. M. Shahadat Hossain    

Abstract: The physical and mechanical parameters of some exotic tossa Jute (JRO 632, JRO-878, JRO-524) and recommended tossa Jute of Bangladesh Jute Research Institute (O-9897, OM-1, O-4) were studied. The variety O-9897 (Corchorus olitorius) produced the highest fiber yield (4.29) ton ha‾1. The same variety produced higher grade fibre (BTB+) with the lowest percentage of cutting (7.50%) significantly. The highest value of fibre strength was observed in the same variety (10.98 lbs mg‾1). Fibre strength varied from 6.65 to 13.38 lbs mg‾1. Some exotic variety showed poor germination, pre mature flowering and disease infestation
