  • The length of a fiber is very important property. The product which should be manufactured is depends on the perfect length of fiber. There are so many natural long staple fibers. Among them jute fiber plays an important role in Indian-subcontinent because in this climate jute plant grows well and we get good qualities jute fiber. But it a matter of great sorrow that our farmers are illiterate and they have no idea about the time limit of retting. Sometimes jute fibers are rated too much long time around 40 to 50 days and sometimes below 30 days. For this reason different length fibers have got on the duration of retting limit. Here the article is about effect on this retting process and it should be identified that how long retting is suitable for getting good length jute fiber. In this article it is shared about the information of length deviation from between these durations. It’s known to us all the fibers are not textile fibers, so for achieving good textile product it’s needed to use the proper length of fibers.
