Abstract:
Agricultural residues are the biomass left in the field after harvesting of the economic components i.e., grain. Large quantities of crop residues are generated every year, in the form of cereal straws, woody stalks, and sugarcane leaves/tops during harvest periods. These residues are used as animal feed, thatching for rural homes, residential cooking fuel and industrial fuel. However, a large portion of the crop residues is not utilized and left in the fields. The disposal of such a large amount of crop residues is a major challenge for sustainability of Indian agriculture. To utilize the increased biomass of corn efficiently and to avoid problems like residue burning its textile application can be explored for making ecologically sustainable agriculture. Extraction of fibre was done by optimizing parameters. Impact of different alkali concentration, scouring and bleaching on the fibre was analyzed. Different properties like bundle strength, elongation%, and weight (gm) were analyzed. From the results it has found that chemical slightly impact the strength, elongation and weight of the fibre. Though, Fibre was suitable for textile applications.
