Kenaf

Originally utilized for the manufacturing of paper for different industries, kenaf is ready to be used in composite applications. Kenaf used to be a large cash crop in the Southeast region of the US and highly prized for its uniform quality of hurd found within the stem. This yields a great paper product, or possible filler for composite applications.
