From the fruits (both ripe and unripe) to the flowers and the leaves, every part of the Banana plant can be put to some use or the other. In addition to the food component, the plant also provides us with valuable fibre. Fibre can be extracted from the pseudo-stem of the Banana plant and can be used to make a variety of items ranging from decorative articles to fabric and paper.
Mr. Prasad and Mr. Mohan, with the technical help and support of the MYRADA Krishi Vigyan Kendra in Gobichettipalayam in Erode district of Tamil Nadu, have ventured into extracting banana fibre and creating a wide range of value added products from it.
