In recent years the great challenge in our country is to construct a low cost building. Decreasing the cost and increasing the strength is done by reinforcing the locally available fiber materials. The main objective of this study is to expose the importance of banana fiber as reinforcement in brick masonry. By using the agricultural materials such as natural fibers will increase the mechanical properties of brick. Nowadays engineers are attracted by fiber reinforced brick. The ultimate theme of our paper is to review the scope of banana fiber in soil reinforcement brick. Banana fibers are eco - friendly and are low in cost and have high tensile and flexural strength. Local engineers use banana fiber reinforced composites because of its low cost and durability but on sub structural building. Our motive is to spread awareness of banana fiber as a construction material in civil engineering construction works. Compression test are done to find the strength of the material. It has been clearly noted that adding fiber will slightly increase in strength. The flexural strength of banana fiber reinforced bric increases when compared with ordinary conventional brick. From this project we have finally concluded that banana fiber reinforced brick is more effective than normal brick.
