Agronomic research advances of jute crops in Bangladesh were selected for its being large concentration points in relation to cultivation methods, climate and soil, cropping pattern etc. The high and medium high land where rain and flood water does not stand is suitable for tossa jute cultivation. Jute requires a warm and humid climate with temperature. Rainfall ranges from 250mm to 270mm for good growth and yield. Proper seed rate for plant population, growth and for maximum yield. Jute varieties are to be planted starting from 15 March, will help incorporate Tossa jute into three crop pattern. To concern Hibiscus canabinus L. varieties planting around 15 March to 30 April and H. sabdarifa L. varieties planting around 15 March to 15 May for optimum fibre yield. For seed production, the best time of seed sowing, in case of C. capsularis L. whole July and of C. olitorious L. within August 30, which give more seed yield. Weed posses a major problem in jute cultivation and weeding operation constitute about one third of the total cost of production. The major weeds in jute field are detected. Weeding, mulching; simultaneous thinning and topdressing of urea fertilizer followed by hoeing are recommended. Besides, one tanabatch and one katabatch provide good effect on fibre yield. Improved cultivation technologies such as good quality seed of improved variety, proper sowing and harvesting time, recommended intercultural management with inputs increases the fibre and seed yields over conventional practices. The cropping patterns Jute-T. aman-Wheat, Potato-Jute-T. aman, Onion-Jute-T. aman, Vegetable-Jute-T. aman and Jute-T. aman-Mastard were sorted agronomically feasible and economically viable.
