Microbial population varies from place to place in the jute growing areas of Bangladesh. Fungal load was higher in post retting water. The addition of post retting microbes in retting test, in vitro, accelerated the retting. Retting period was almost half in treatment with microbes from post retting water than that of pre-retting water. Chemical properties of post retting water was within the range of environmental control.
