Abstract
Sudan wit. its great agricultural potential -only about 10 percent of its 81 million cultivable hectares 'being under rproduction, is in continuous increasing need of bagging and 'baling facilities for its field crops such as sorghum, sesame, groundnuts, wheat, rice and cotton. It is estimated that about ten million Sudanese pounds worth of jute is imported annually into the country. This figure is expected to rise in the near future as a result of the recent policy of diversification and intensification of the cropping systems. Information on agronomic practices that would increase product~on of kenaf as a local substitute for jute would go a long way towards meeting some of the needs mentioned above while saving some foreign currency for the country.
