Title: Changes in kenaf properties and chemistry as a function of growing time

Author: Rowell, Roger M.; Han, James S.;

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Kenaf Tainung 1 cultivar was grown in Madison, WI in 1994. The ratio of core to bast fiber, total plant yield, protein, ash, fiber length, extractives, lignin, and sugar content were determined as a function of growing age. Ash, protein, extractives, L-arabinose, L-rhamnose, D-galactose, and D-mannose contents decreased while lignin, D-glucose and D-xylose content increased as the plant matured. Fiber length increased in the early part of the growing cycle, then decreased, then increased again as the plant matured.

Keywords: Kenaf, Chemical properties, Physical properties, Growth period, Cultivars, Yields, Fibers, Protein content, Extractives, Lignin, Sugar content
