Introduction Jute is the bast fibre extracted from the stem of Corchorus plant. There are two species of jute, i.e., Corchorus capsularis and Corchorus olitorius. Most of the valuable vegetable textile fibres except cotton are obtained from jute. In Bangladesh jute is the principal agricultural crop. Jute has long been renowned as a cheap, strong, durable fabric eminently suited for sacks, bags, carpet making, etc., as its traditional uses. It has long been playing its historical role in the socio-economic development of Bangladesh. Export of jute and its related products accounts for a significant portion of total export earning. In addition, it provides a remarkable employment opportunities to the total work force of the country. In recent years, this golden fibre of Bangladesh has been facing a stiff competition with the synthetics. As a result, its demand in local and overseas markets has declined. Thus, the export of jute and jute goods has shrunk to a significant degree thereby throwing a dark shadow on the overall economy of the country. Consequently, jute growers are the ultimate Victims as they do not get a fair price of their produce. The situation has further aggravated due to comperatively higher growth
