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.
