Farmers busy in retting of jute crops

The work of separating fiber from the decayed jute plants produced this season is underway in each of the seven upazilas of Gaibandha district.

Around 112,500 hectares of land in the district was brought under jute cultivation this season, with intent to produce 133,356 jute bales. Harvesting of the jute plants in these newly added areas concluded before some days.

Presently, these jute cultivators are occupied in detaching fibre from the decayed jute crops drenched in water. Also they are also busy drying the fibre, by exposing it under the sun, so that it is ready for sale in market.

Jute growers are delighted as this season they are getting a better price for their produce, a price that has gone up, beyond their expectations. Jute based on its quality is now being quoted at TK 1600 to 1900 per maund (40 Kg) in the domestic markets.

Government officials are introducing and publicizing the ribbon retting technique to the cultivators, by providing them with free ribboners, training and incentives, while acquainting them with other modern agricultural techniques.
