Title of the Innovation: Coirret Innoculant for Retting Coconut Husks
Brief About Innovation
Area of Discipline : Coir
About the process :
Retting by the conventional methods takes 6 to 10 months. The new process developed relates to reducing the period of retting of coconut husks and upgrading the quality of unretted green husk coir fibre treatment by treatment with a combination of bacterial cultures. The coirret is a consortium of microbes and is applied directly to coconut husk in RCC tanks. In this method, the retting time is reduced from 7-11 months to 3 months only and the quality of fibre is the same as natural retted fibre obtained from the backwaters.
