Huang ma

Gen info
Corchorus is a genus plant of about 40-100 species in the family Malvaceae. Jute is confusingly applied to any plant of the genus Corchorus and to its fiber. The chief sources of the fiber are the two species of Corchorus plant: C olitorius and C capsularis. In the Philippines, three Corchorus species are recorded with medicinal uses: Pasau, Pasau na bilog, and pasay na hapa. Another pasau, Pasau-na-hapai, Jussiaea erecta belongs to the family Onagraceae.

Botany
Pasau-na-bilog is an erect, branched annual herb, growing up to 1 to 2 meters high. Stems are usually purplish. Leaves areovate-lanceolate, 5 to 12 cm long, pointed at the tip and rounded at the base, with toothed margins and taillike projections on the each side of the midrib. Flowers are in small groups in the axils of the leaves. Sepals are often purplish; petals are yellow. Capsules are globose to globose-obovoid, about 1 cm in diameter with longitudinal ridges.

Distribution
In clearings, rice paddy banks, and in low, open and wet places in and near settlements.

Constituents
– Active principle of the jute seed is corchorin, a glucoside ten times more bitter than quinine sulfate.
– From the leaves, capsularin, with the same molecular formula as corchorin.
– Seed contains 2.25 percent of raffinose.
– Oil contains the glycerides of oleic acid, 39.18%; glycerides of linolic acid, 44.63 %; a small quantity of "crude archidic acid," 0.169%; and palmitic and stearic acid.

Properties
– Considered carminative, cardiac, laxative, febrifuge, and tonic.
– Leaves considered stimulant, laxative, demulcent, appetizer and stomachic.
– The corchorin may be toxic and some studies suggest a digitalis-effect on the heart.
Parts used
Seeds and leaves.

Uses
Edibility / Nutrition

White jute (Corchorus capsularis)
Several historical documents (including, Ain-e-Akbari by Abul Fazal in 1590) state that the poor villagers of India used to wear clothes made of jute. Simple handlooms and hand spinning wheels were used by the weavers, who used to spin cotton yarns as well. History also states that Indians, especially Bengalis, used ropes and twines made of white jute from ancient times for household and other uses.

History

For centuries, jute has been an integral part of culture of Bengal, in the entire southwest of Bangladesh and some portions of West Bengal, India. During the British Raj in the 19th and early 20th centuries, much of the raw jute fibre of Bengal was carried off to the United Kingdom, where it was then processed in mills concentrated in Dundee. Initially, due to its texture, it could only be processed by hand until it was discovered in that city that treating it with whale oil, it could be treated by machine[1] The industry boomed ("jute weaver" was a recognised trade occupation in the 1901 UK census), but this trade had largely ceased by about 1970 due to the appearance of synthetic fibres.
Margaret Donnelly, a jute mill landowner in Dundee in the 1800s, set up the first jute mills in Bengal. In the 1950s and 1960s, when nylon and polythene were rarely used, one of the primary sources of foreign exchange earnings for the erstwhile United Pakistan was the export of jute products, based on jute grown in then East Bengal (now Bangladesh). Jute has been called the "Golden Fibre of Bangladesh." However, as the use of polythene and other synthetic materials as a substitute for jute increasingly captured the market, the jute industry in general experienced a decline.
During some years in the 1980s, farmers in Bangladesh burnt their jute crops when an adequate price could not be obtained. Many jute exporters diversified away from jute to other commodities. Jute-related organisations and government bodies were also forced to close, change or downsize. The long decline in demand forced the largest jute mill in the world (Adamjee Jute Mills) to close. Bangladesh’s second largest mill, Latif Bawany Jute Mills, formerly owned by businessman, Yahya Bawan, was nationalized by the government. Farmers in Bangladesh have not completely ceased growing jute, however, mainly due to demand in the internal market. Between 2004–2010, the jute market recovered and the price of raw jute increased more than 500%[citation needed].
Jute has entered many diverse sectors of industry, where natural fibres are gradually becoming better substitutes. Among these industries are paper, celluloid products (films), non-woven textiles, composites (pseudo-wood), and geotextiles.
In December 2006 the General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed 2009 to be the International Year of Natural Fibres, so as to raise the profile of jute and other natural fibres.

Production

Jute matting being used to prevent flood erosion while natural vegetation becomes established. For this purpose, a natural and biodegradable fibre is essential.
Jute is a rain-fed crop with little need for fertilizer or pesticides. The production is concentrated in Bangladesh and some in India, mainly Bengal. The jute fibre comes from the stem and ribbon (outer skin) of the jute plant. The fibres are first extracted by retting. The retting process consists of bundling jute stems together and immersing them in low, running water. There are two types of retting: stem and ribbon. After the retting process, stripping begins. Women and children usually do this job. In the stripping process, non-fibrous matter is scraped off, then the workers dig in and grab the fibres from within the jute stem.[2] India, Pakistan, China are the large buyers of local jute while Britain, Spain, Ivory Coast, Germany and Brazil also import raw jute from Bangladesh. India is the world’s largest jute growing country.

The plants are tall, usually annual herbs, reaching a height of 2-4 m, unbranched or with only a few side branches. Their leaves are alternate, simple, lanceolate, 5-15 cm long, with an acuminate tip and a finely serrated or lobed margin. Their flowers are small (2-3 cm diameter) and yellow, with five petals; the fruit is a many-seeded capsule. It thrives almost anywhere, and can be grown year-round.
Jute is used as herbal medicine to control or prevent dysentery, worm and constipation etc. It leaves are being used as health-food in Japan. Jute leave is rich in vitamins, carotinoids, calcium, potassium and dietary fibers. Jute leaf contains antitumor promoters; Phytol and Monogalactosyl-diacylglycerol. It may reduce risk of cancer.

Notes
BRIEF DESCRIPTION A herbaceous plant with a straight, slender stem, 3-4 m in height under cultivation. USES It is grown as a fiber crop. The fibers are used for coarse woven fabrics, sacking, or fibers. It is also used in twines and carpet yarns. The soft fibers are weaker than hemp or flax. GROWING PERIOD Annual, may be harvested after 80-150 days, depending on varirty. COMMON NAMES White jute, Yute, Jute. FURTHER INF White jute is native to a region including India, Myanmar and sourthern China. It can be found in tropical lowland and perhaps also highland. It require a humid climate with a relative humidity between 60 and 90% in the growing period, but diurnal fluctuations of up to 50% are not a disadvantage. Young plants are sensitive to waterlogging, but more mature plants will tolerate flooding. White jute is often grown on areas that are inundated every year and enriched by deposits. It is a short-day plant but longer days prolong the vegetative phase and it is therefore normally sown when the day-length exceeds 12.5 hours. White jute is more commonly grown than the closely related, tussa jute (C. olitorius). Yields may be about 34 t/ha of green plants giving 2 t/ha of dry retted fiber.
