The ramie fibre requires chemical processing to de-gum the fibre. The ramie fibre is one of the strongest natural fibre. It poses even greater strength wet conditions. The ramie fibre is known specially for its ability to hold shape, reduce wrinkwrinkle character. It provides silk like lustre to the fabric. It has slightly poor durability.
In 20th century, the people used ramie fibre to make a open weave fabric called "mechera" for shirts and gowns to be used in warm climates.
The ramie's crop gets well developed in the areas having good irrigation system. The farmers should not sow this crop if there is a problem of rain water logging and floiding in their fields. The soil should not have the deficiency of calcium. The ph of the soil should be range from 5.5 to 5.6
The propagation through rhizomes helps to ensure good sprouting. This practice helps to reduce the propagation cost too.
The quantity of rhizomes obtained from an unit area depends on the age of plantation and variety. Usually the quantity of rhizomes obtained from one hectare of 2 years old plantation can give enough planting material to cover at least 20 hectares of land.
The rhyzomes pieces are normally planted in furrows spaced 40 cm. to 50 cm. apart. The rhyzomes are planted under 3 CMS. deep in the soil. The each piece is planted at 45 ° angle. The one third of the length of the piece is kept above the ground. The row to row distance keeps 80 - 100 cms.
