Happy Earth Day 2015 everybody!

I think Oklahoma agriculture (big and small, production and local 
orientations and urban ag folks alike) should take notice of this plant: 
kenaf. The wikipedia article concludes -- "Kenaf is considered a hardy 
plant that requires a minimum of fertilizers, pesticides and water in 
comparison to conventional row crops"

It used for making paper, cordage and other fiber products, livestock 
feed, and seed oil. And drought tolerance is extra interesting these days.
