An experiment was conducted at Faridpur, Bangladesh with five treatments to test the feasibility of Jute-rice intercropping system with a view to natural fibre production along with maintain food security. Two plant material namely Jute (Corchorus capsularis), variety CVL-1and Rice (Oryza sativa), BRRI dhan43 was used at this experiment. Five treatments namely sole jute, jute intercropped with rice at 30cm spacing, jute intercropped with rice at 40cm spacing, jute intercropped with rice at 50cm spacing and sole rice was applied in Randomized Complete Block Design with three replication. Result revealed that jute-rice intercropping system gave beneficial income, land equivalent ratio, area time equivalent ratio than sole rice cropping. Jute intercropped with rice at 30cm spacing treatment gave a better scope of getting fibre and food grain from the same land at a time without sacrificing fibre yield.
