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.
