Problems faced by the industry

The availability of quality raw jute and shrinking acreage on the one-hand and the failure of most jute mills to modernise have left the sector dependent on government-support like packaging reservations. The sector is still primitive, involves labour-intensive cultivation methods and retting creating problems for the Industry. With raw jute prices remaining below the support price in 2018, the area-under-cultivation may stagnate in the coming years. The technology adoption to this sector is also limited by various factors.
