How to deal with soil erosion?

Good news. Soil erosion would no longer be a threat. Courtesy Jute Board. The central government agency is in the process to deploy an emerging technology to deal with the alarming menace of soil erosion because of incessant rainfall.

Known as Jute Geo-Textile technology, it is pushed by the National Jute Board  which is cheaper and much more environment friendly.

According to sources, 170 trial projects are underway in 22 states. The result is encouraging. JGT was used in constructing a seven-km-long road in Tripura among the 170 projects in a very few other states in the country.

Assam is the biggest producer of jute in the country although there are very few jute mills in the state producing simple bags and other materials and yet to start JGT production.
