A fast-growing plant called kenaf promises to be an alternative to wood pulp
for papermaking. Research dates back to 1956, when a team of ARS researchers
singled out kenaf as a potential papermaking candidate. Today, through
cooperative agreements with private firms, kenaf is poised to make the leap
from the laboratory to full-scale production.
