Bangladeshi experts have stressed on adopting latest technologies to get maximum output of high yielding local variety of jute, quality jute seeds and retting jute plants amid water scarcity, according a news agency report.

The experts' opinion came at a day-long training workshop in Rangpur on 'Production of high yielding local variety jute, jute seeds and improved retting technology'. Bangladesh is the second largest jute producer in the world.

The Directorate of Jute under the Ministry of Jute & Textiles and Upazila Jute Department with assistance of the Department of Agriculture Extension (DAE) organised the workshop for 100 selected farmers for extension of the technologies.

Upazila Jute Development Officer Dilip Kumar Malakar said adoption of ribbon retting technologies for rotting and separation of the fibre helps the farmers in getting maximum production of high yielding local variety jute with upgraded quality fibre.

He said expanded and multidimensional use of jute products has been increasing its demand faster following adverse effects of synthetic fibre on environment throughout the world ushering new hope for reviving past glory of the 'golden' fibre.

Upazila Agriculture Officer Rezaul Karim spoke about the lowest-cost ribbon retting method of the fibre during droughts or water scarcity also to improve quality and grade of jute-kenaf-mesta fibre to ensure higher market price.

Horticulture Specialist Khondker Md Mesbahul Islam said large-scale adoption of the lowest-cost ribbon-retting technology might be crucial in future amid climate change that continues affecting agriculture sector and creating water scarcity.

Senior Assistant Project Director Mossarraf Hossain discussed various traditional and low-cost retting ways, including ribbon retting of the fibre during water scarcity in only nine days, to improve quality and grade of jute-kenaf-mesta fibre.

Badarganj Upazila Nirbahi Officer Kazi Abeda Gulshanwho was the chief guest at the function, called upon the experts and farmers for achieving self-reliance on locally produced quality jute seeds to increase cultivation of the crop adopting the latest technologies to further enhance production of the quality fibre.
