Abstract
Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L. (Malvaceae))is grown commercially at Kahe, 23 kilometres south-east of Moshi, Tanzania. The plant was introduced in 1968 by the East African Kenaf Industries Ltd., a subsidiary company of National Development Corporation (N.D.C.)of Tanzania. The estate consists of about 4,050 hectares of which 505 and 3,467 hectares are estimated to be under cultivation for Kenaf seed and fibre respectively in 1973. It is also estimated that the production of seed and fibre by 1973 will be 100.5 and 2,861.2 metrictons respectively. Other crops grown on the estate are maize, paddy, beans and pasture and it is estimated that 277 cattle and 334 other animals will be raised there in 1973.
