ABSTRACT:
Corn, which is one of the staple food crops of our country could be exploited as a potential source of textile fibres as well. Agro waste like sugarcane bagasse, rice husk and cornhusk etc. have traditionally been used as fuels but their burning adds to air pollution. They need to be utilized more efficiently to add to our existing renewable resources. One such agro waste that can be employed to broaden our textile resource basket is; cornhusk, the outer covering of the corn cobs. This could prove a major breakthrough for our economy as same crop will yield both food and textile fibre.
