Abstract: Some structural parameters of fibre bundles, as revealed by the microscopical study of the transverse section of jute plant stems, have been found to have high positive correlations with filament fineness of extracted fibres. Equations have been derived by linear regression analysis to predict the fineness of extracted fibres. The study would not only be very helpful in selecting the fine fibre producing plants in breeding programmes, but will also provide some information on the structure -quality relationship of jute fibre, necessary for genetic upgradation of fibre quality.
