|Title:||An Innovative Integrated Jute Grading Instrument|
Saha, S C
|Abstract:||The quality parameters of jute fibres are key factors in its utilization and fixing the prices. During the marketing of jute fibre, price is usually fixed on the basis of rough subjective judgment of the fibre quality and the assessment of quality of fibre may vary from grader to grader. Six quality parameters of jute fibres are considered for the assessment of the quality and grading of fibres. These parameters are strength, root content, defects, fineness colour and bulk density. Grading of jute fibre by hand & eye method is very difficult for a farmer because there are different sub-groups for each parameter. So the growers are deprived by the purchaser due to their inability to grade the product. Therefore, keeping the interest of the farmers and traders in mind, an automated integrated jute grading instrument has been developed. This instrument is easy to operate and gives reliable results comparable to those obtained from the existing instruments.|
