Jute thrives best in damp heat, and the climatic conditions prevalent in West Bengal in India are well suited for its cultivation. Indian states ideally suitable for the cultivation of jute are:
  • West Bengal
  • Bihar
  • Assam
  • Orissa
  • Uttar Pradesh

Mesta, or Kenif, botanically known as Hibiscus Cannabinus, is also grown in these areas as a textile fiber. Mesta is a coarser, more brittle fiber, and is used by the jute mills in admixture with jute to obtain certain desired properties.
