Impact of Stem-water Ratio and Separately Retting the Top and Basal Parts of Jute on the Quality of Fibre

M. Shamsul Haque, M. Asaduzzaman, Firoza Akhter, M. M. Hossain and Zakaria Ahmed    

Abstract: An experiment was conducted in laboratory condition maintaining the ratio of plant stems and water at the range of 1:5, 1:10, 1:15, 1:20, 1:25 and 1:30 at a temperature 30°C. The best retting phenomena was observed at the ratio of 1:20. After the completion of retting in each ratio, fibre properties were measured and the best fibre was obtained at the ratio of 1:20. In the Retting top and bottom parts of the jute plants separately and malleting 40 cm of the basal part improved the fibre quality and showed more or less uniform retting. The cutting was completely eliminated through malleting and separately retting top and the bottom parts of the jute plants.
