Acreage under Mesta, raw material for jute production to grow

Awareness camps will be held by the Andhra Pradesh Jute Development Centre (APJDC) throughout the state to support mesta, which is utilized as raw material for jute manufacturing.

Mesta is cultivated by the farmers on about 38,000-40,000 acres of land in Andhra Pradesh. A single acre of land produces about 10-12 quintals of mesta. There are 30 jute manufacturing units in the state which need about 2-2.5 million quintals of mesta.

According to the Vice Chairman and Managing Director of APJDC – B V Rama Rao, the state produces only 400,000 quintals of mesta currently and therefore the manufacturing units are bound to depend on West Bengal and Bangladesh for meeting their requirements.

Awareness camps will be organized in the month of October. He said that, APJDC intends to raise the area under mesta cultivation in Andhra Pradesh to 1.5-2 million acres in the near future.

He also added that mesta requirement will increase owing to the boost in the number of jute mills in the state. The proposal, made by APJDC for jute parks in the districts of Visakhapatnam, Guntur and Rangaeeddy, will attract more jute mills.
