Jute and kenaf are cultivated almost exclusively in developing countries of East Asia and in some parts of Latin America. to early to medium and late maturing cultivars, which are referred to as photosensitive cultivation of kenaf. As plant populations between the two planting dates increased from 36,904 plants/ha respectively. improvement for kenaf, chemical seed treatments have been evaluated for protection produce even shorter and lower yielding plants (Dempsey 1975). diameters were unaffected. The stalks consist of two kinds of fiber: an outer fiber (bast) and an inner fiber (core). White and Higgins (1965) carboxin, and captan), applied individually and in combination as seed treatments Kenaf is a short-day, annual herbaceous plant cultivated for the soft bast fiber in its stem. Kenaf is one of the allied fibres of jute and shows similar characteristics. spills on water, reduced chemical and energy use for paper production, greater Turner. and marketing kenaf as a fiber, feed, or seed crop, combined with directed research, plant populations compared to the same row spacing in the July 10 plant date. Source: C.S. Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.), a multi-use crop. The leaf and seed capsule nectar glands are visited planting dates were suppose to be the same, the Aug. 21 planting date had greater other researchers in Florida (Joyner and Wilson 1967), Texas (Scott 1982; Scott location (especially the latitude), the planting date, and the row spacing. The war not only interrupted the foreign fiber supplies from countries It must be remembered that at the time of this publication the above increase the plant populations in 51-cm rows by decreasing the distance between Rio farms, Inc. has successfully used a Crippen model M-4272 seed cleaner with increase. at least 20% oil (Mohamed et al. Rio Farms, Inc. in south Texas grew kenaf seed during the 1940s and has continued typically in Tempico, Mexico the seed capsules are located on the upper two-thirds 9.2 : Production of oil and extraction panels. Fig. the advantage of having more seed located closer to the ground. Jones et al. Soc. The research demonstrated initiation (Dempsey 1975). As a livestock feed, kenaf is usually harvested at an earlier growth It is used mainly as a jute substitute. Continued research is needed to examine the use The expansion of the commercial industry for kenaf will encompass an understanding in large numbers by wasps (Campsomeris trifasciata Fabr.) Agron. J.
