Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.) is an herbaceous annual plant and an essential source of raw material for fiber and paper-based industries. Kenaf is classified within the Malvaceae family, where most of the chromosomes are bivalent, with only a few univalents and no trivalent or quadrivalent. Kenaf has approximately 120 names, including mesta, roselle, treal, ambary hemp, and rama, reflecting the fibrous species’ diversification and widespread use. Kenaf is considered a jute substitute and has received great attention due to its status as a multi-purpose fiber crop. Traditionally, kenaf is cultivated mainly for its fiber production.
