Bact.26(2): 117–126. 1 Present address: Department of Botany and Plant Pa-thology, NMichigan State University, East Lansing, Mlichigan. Retting in a tank was appreciably hastened by using the same water for successive batches of jute. It also comes from the stem. Retting softens the stalks and makes it possible to separate the fibrous material from the unusable material by hand. 1965. Bacteria capable of retting jute are present in pond water, in the soil of jute fields, and on the surface of jute plants. The most widely practiced method of retting, water retting, is performed by submerging bundles of stalks in water. This fertile geographic region is shared by both Bangladesh and India (mainly West Bengal).

Retting of jute in pond water increased the water As content by 0.2 to 2.0 mg L − 1. Nicknamed the golden fiber, jute fiber deteriorates rapidly and because of uneven diameters and comparatively low cellulose concentrations, jute is relatively weak. Sci.16: 453–58. The optimum temperature is around 34°C. Both over retting and under retting which are very difficult to control causes production of low grade jute fibre. Then comes the defoliation stage where the leaves are removed. Basic methods include dew retting and water retting. Pakist. This process removes the non-fibrous material from the stem and the skin of the jute plant. This Order is valid upto 30 th September, 2020. Jour, agric. The two retting types are ribbon retting and stem retting. Eleven jute fibre extraction machines have been distributed among 11 farmers free of cost in the district. Ali, M. M. & M. A. Islam.

This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access. Ahmad, M. 1963. The traditional method is to ret the jute stems for about 15–18 days and extract the fibre manually after retting. • Under ground water was then added to the retting tank and the jute The stalks, over 3 meters in height, are gathered by hand and softened in water. Jour. The jute fibers are located beneath the bark, primarily concentrated near the woody, central … But use of efficient pectinolytic microbial inoculum improves quality of fibre, further reduce the time of retting and the environmental pollution. Studies in jute retting aerobic bacteria. Usually mature stems of harvested jute plants are allowed to ret in pond or ditch water. Salle, A. J. In conventional retting, a huge biomass undergoes decomposition in stagnant water, so retting causes environmental pollution. Retting time must be carefully judged; under-retting makes separation difficult, and over-retting weakens the fibre. During the storage of fish, dynamic primary changes are taking place in numerous parts of the fish, including the eyes, skin, gills and muscle characteristics of the fish. Bangladesh is the second major producer of jute globally, producing 1,523,315 metric tons of jute in 2011. Jute is an eco-friendly and bio-degradable natural product with no adverse effect on the environment. Jute fibres are composed primarily of the plant materials cellulose (major component of plant fibre) and lignin (major components of wood fibre). Subscription will auto renew annually. • Conventional retting practice emits a little bit more nutrients, biogas and residues to the air and water compared to ribbon retting. Then the fiber is stripped away from the bark by hand (retting) and woven into usable product. Ribbon retting reduces time of normal retting … - 185.32.189.129. Jour. Excellent fibre separation with ethylenediamine tetramethylene phosphonic acid (EDTMPA) has been reported [ 166 ]. MATERIALS ANDMETHODS For the detection of the rettinig ability of such bac-teria, sterile jute-stem-tubes were prepared by intro- Studies on jute retting bacteria. 1. The fibres can be extracted by either biological or chemical retting … Both over retting and under retting which are very difficult to control causes production of low grade jute fibre. For natural retting, still the most appropriate process in East Pakistan, large clean ponds are thought to provide the most suitable conditions. After this retting process is over, the non-fibrous matter of jute is scraped off in a process called "stripping", and then the fibers are separated by beating the stem with a paddle. Prolonged immersion involves the risk of over-retting, probably because of the action of cellulolytic bacteria. • The strength of fibre is very poor. • Total methane generation from jute production is estimated to be 18.8x1010 g/year. Microbiol.6(2): 87–89. It is used in the production of fibre from plant materials such as flax and hemp stalks and coir from coconut husks. 1965.

The existing Order under Jute Packaging Materials (JPM) Act, 1987 dated 20 th December, 2019 stipulates that 100% of Foodgrains and 20% sugar are required to be packed compulsorily in jute bags. Ribbon retting reduces time of normal retting by 4–5 days. Infinita Biotech. India earns annually about 1200 crore rupees as a foreign exchange by exporting various jute products. Ali, M. M. 1958. Gently flowing, fairly deep, clear and soft water is ideal for retting. 1955. Jute Fiber comes from the outer skin of the jute plant called the ribbon. Article  Tax calculation will be finalised during checkout. Next, the plant is put through what is called retting. Jute is one of the important natural fibers after cotton in terms of cultivation and usage. This process is faster than the traditional methods of retting and is already taking over the fibre-extraction industry and has been a go-to option for textile producers. Bot.19(4): 384–393. Retting is a preferential rotting process to separate the fibre from woody stem without damaging the fibre cellulose. Economic Botany Jalaluddin, M. Further observations on the bacteriology of jute retting. Abstract BBS.2008. Retting in a tank was appreciably hastened by using the same water for successive batches of jute. very difficult to control causes production of low grade jute fibre. Private communication. The process of retting consists of bundling stems of the jute and immersing these in water that is slowly running. In double retting, a gentle process producing excellent fibre, the stalks are removed from the water before retting is completed, dried for several months, then retted again. PubMed  • Microbial consortium with a cfu (108 to 1010) was then applied to the jute bundles in the pond. Retting Environment • Jute assimilates about 5.8 ton CO2 from the atmosphere in its lifetime (Rahman and Bala, 2009). 1944. Retting microbes consume the non-fibrous cementing materials mainly pectin and hemicellulose. A process called retting is used to remove the non-fibrous material from the stem and skin of the jute stalk. Retting is a process employing the action of micro-organisms and moisture on plants to dissolve or rot away much of the cellular tissues and pectins surrounding bast-fibre bundles, and so facilitating separation of the fibre from the stem. Debsarma, G. D. 1946. This investigation was carried over to detect aerobic jute retting bacteria. Climate = Relative humidity between 40-90% and temperature between 17° C and 41°C, along with well distributed rainfall over 1200 mm is ideal for cultivation and growth of jute. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. In our study, a mixed bacterial retting culture, developed in our institute, was inoculated during ribbon retting of jute. Immediate online access to all issues from 2019. Prolonged immersion involves the risk of over-retting, probably because of the action of cellulolytic bacteria. M. Jalaluddin. The mature jute plant is normally harvested by hand. Present address: Crop Research Institute for Jute and Allied Fibre, ICAR, Barackpore, India. Climate – Relative humidity between 40-90% and temperature between 17° C and 41°C, along with well distributed rainfall over 1200 mm is ideal for cultivation and growth of jute.. Cult.9: 451. Rishbeth, J. different types of retting processes used for bast plants such as hemp, jute, flax, and kenaf, with an emphasis on kenaf. CAS  Ponds in villages are not allowed for jute retting in general as the water turns dark and foul-smelling making it unfit for domestic use and pisciculture, breeds mosquitoes and creates environmental problem. They appear as wedge-shaped bundles of cells intermingled with parenchyma cells and other soft tissue. Microbia1: 34–43.
