Small plants grow in a few days. The fields are weeded when the plants are grown one feet or so high. In three or four months the plants are matured. When the jute plants become eight to ten feet height the plants are cut and tied up in bundles and kept under water. When they get rotten, the fibers are separated from the stalks. Then the fibers are washed and dried in the sun. Then it is made ready for sale. Jute is put to many uses. Ropes, gunny bags, clothes, mats etc. are made of jute.
