Facts About Jute Fibers
Jute is a very important geo-textile and is used to make containers that are used in the planting of young trees. Its biodegradability allows for direct planting of the container into the soil and over time the jute degrades naturally. This ensures not only root protection but also reduces labor inputs. In places where soil erosion is a threat, cloth made of jute is draped over the soil preventing erosion while at the same time allowing young plants to breathe and survive. In this application of jute, the ground temperature is also brought down, and the degraded fiber enriches the soil eventually. Fiber shown in banner: silk dupioni.
