Climate and Soils:
The seeds are sown in the field after seed bed preparation. The seed's sowing times varies according to arrival of Manson. The seeds are sown in the field from March to June in various part of the country. Since it is grown in rainy season, it doesn't need extra irrigation. The rain water gets enough to develop the crop. The crop needs to be irritated by available water source, it the monsoon gets below than normal. The organic ferfertilizers like compost of plants leaves is used to improve the proper growth of the crop. The chemical fertilizers like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potash are also used. Insecticides should be used if required. The Interculturing is necessary in the beginning stage of the jute crop.
The jute crop gets developed completely in 4 - 5 months. The height of main stem reach to 12 feet and more. The flowers are appeared on the plants now. It is the indication of harvesting time. The fibre are gotten healthy if the crop is havested early. The plants are cut from ground level. The harvested plants are left in the field for A week till leaves drying. The stems are tied into a bundles.
The stripping of the fibres are carried out manually. The stem is broken at near one end of the stem. The fibres are stripped . The fibres can be stripped in wet conditions too. The wet condition help to prevent the breakage of the fibres during stripping.
After squeezing excess water the fibres are hang on bamboo railing for sun drying for 2 days-3 days.
When the fibres get dried completely, the are graded as per required grading system. The fibres are finally packed into bales. The one bale contains approximately 250 piunds weight in it.
