Jute is a renewable natural fiber and it is also biodegradable and environmentally friendly. It is one of the cheapest natural fibers and in addition, after cotton, the most widely used. It’s fiber that can be spun into strong threads. The plants from which jute is obtained occurs mainly in hot, humid areas such as Bangladesh, China and India.
It is one of the few crops in the world that can be grown in the same farmland during monsoon season, and after harvesting, rice paddy can be planted on the same soil. So this rotational farming restores the soil fertility and structure. The leaves of jute plants enrich the fertility of the soil for sustained agriculture and have good nutrition value as vegetables. The use of jute sticks as fuel and fencing material as substitutes for wood prevents deforestation. Therefore, with the increased global concern for the environment, the prospects for jute continue to remain high.
Jute leaves are also beneficial to health. It is high in calcium and magnesium – two minerals that are essential for daily bodily functions. The combination of both minerals is especially important in maintaining bone health as they work in tandem to help form and maintain strong bones and teeth.
