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 as well as jobs and businesses. A crop that when grown helps makes soil healthier while it grows, sequesters 3-9 tons more CO2 than other plants and helps save our forest, helps eliminate the need for pesticides and fertilizer and more.
