Kenaf plants mature when they produce thier first flower and will continue to flower for up to 3 weeks. Each new flower lasts for one day and falls off and then a seed pod begins to form. It takes approximately 2 weeks for the seed pods to produce viable seed once the pods begin to form.
Plant seeds 1/4-1/2 inch deep. For the best germination rates plant seeds when soil is between 72F-74F degrees. Soil needs to be moist when planted and remain moist for at least 2 weeks after sprouting. Distance between seeds in rows is 7 inches and rows should be 7 inches apart.
This is the same plant spacing for growing kenaf for fiber/wood.
Seed harvesting by hand will require good work gloves when removing from the stalks. You may want to have protective gear when removing the seeds from the seed pods to avoid getting pricked.

It is time to let people in the USA know that Kenaf is a cash crop and resource for over 25,000 products and is not regulated like Industrial Hemp. It has the potential of becoming a major resource for both new and old industry markets for jobs and busineses. A crop that when grown helps makes soil healthier while it grows, helps save our forest, helps eliminate the need for pesticides and fertilizer and more.
