About the Practice
Problem Statement:

Waste management of banana plant


He once attended a meeting at KVK, Madurai and developed interest in recycling banana plant waste into an income venture programme. During 1998 he started taking fibre from banana pseudo stem after the harvest of banana fruits. He has mechanized fibre separating process and stabilized the production of banana fibre over the last 19 years based on his own experiments and failures. The banana rope is used for making products such as handbags, mat and small baskets etc. He was able to sell the banana fibre products by himself and he found it tedious. By seeing the manual method, he and his wife have fed up this activity and reached a stage to stop this activity during 2002.
