Abstract
The cultivation and development of ramie has been reviewed by Willimott in World Crops, 1954 [I J. It originated as a fibre crop in Chipa and the Far East, where it has been used from earliest times. Only recently. however, have reports been made on the feeding value of ramie leaves. These have come mainly from Florida, U.S.A., and claim that the leaves are readily eaten by stock, and have a high protein and fat content.
