Choose the correct answer:

India and Bangladesh are the leading producers of ________________.
A) Cotton

B) Jute

C) Wheat

Answer :

Jute is an important fibre crop that is grown in the tropical regions of the world. It is also known as the golden fibre. It is an important component of the textile industry throughout the world. The cultivation of jute requires a high temperature, high rainfall, and fertile, alluvial soil. Thus the tropical zone of the world is ideal for its production. It is majorly cultivated in the floodplains of West Bengal and Bangladesh where the soil is highly rich and fertile. It gives the best yield in the alluvial soil that has rich nutrients because of the deposition by the flow of rivers and water bodies over time. It results in the formation of river beds and ensures the development of smooth and fertile soil ideal for cultivation. Almost two-thirds of the jute production is carried out in India and Bangladesh.
