   Guar Seed - Raw Material    
  Guar (Cyamopsis tetragonolobus), which belongs to the leguminosae family, is an annual plant, withlarge leaves and clusters of bean like pods, each containing from six to nine pea-shaped seeds. The plant grows in India and Pakistan, is drought resistant and grows well in those semi-arid areas where less hardy crops perish. The Guar crop is sowed after the monsoons, and harvested in early winter. The pods (from 5 to 8 cm) are then opened mechanically to collect the seeds. The guar seed is dicotyledonous, with a diameter of approximately 2.5mm. It contains a large fibrous material composed of thin layers of cellusic material.
