Kenaf, A New Rotational Cash Crop for American Farmers.

This book is a stepping stone and a golden opportunity for farmers across America. In partnership with Kenaf Partners USA, farmers have a ground floor opportunity to plant, grow and harvest the hibiscus plant “kenaf” for its precious seed. Kenaf Partners USA’s Pilot Seed Growing Program is underway and should prove to be key to opening doors to kenaf as a rotational cash crop and contribute markedly to existing and new businesses across the USA.

In 2019, finding kenaf seed is like searching for gold. There is very little of it to be found in the USA and its sources seem to be as closely guarded as Fort Knox. Just try to acquire the requisite seed to plant a one thousand acre farm in any of the various latitudes of the USA.

Good luck.

Kenaf Partners USA has researched and formulated short and long range plans for farmers to cash in on this gold rush for 2019 and beyond. The first step of the formula is raising kenaf for seed. This is truly a “Seeds for Life” undertaking by Kenaf Partners USA in partnership with farmers with the foresight to look to the future for options. There is a vast need for seed production as well as providing fiber/wood/oil for current and new markets for this diverse plant. QuickTurtle Books® has scraped the surface of some of this plant’s diverse properties and uses in their first book titled Kenaf, Seeds for Life. It is available here on this website or as a free download from:

or as a paperback from Amazon.

As things currently stand, many of America’s farmers are unsuspectedly being ushered down a dead end road paved by false data, missing data and Special Interest’s recommendations labeled as “Best Practices”. The current recklessness of GMO seed patenting and seed manipulation, along with unnecessary pesticides, herbicides and limited soil nutrient recommendations should soon become a relic for the history books.

If you want to retain your precious land’s soil and seed for future generations, now is the time to act. It is time to start cutting the umbilical cord from these chemical giants that are working around the clock to manipulate and monopolize your seed and crop production.

These same organizations are the ones that lobby and bribe our government representatives in order to protect and promote their dangerous and unsustainable farming practices. Kenaf

Partners USA’s bottom line is your success and our paying it forward!

This book is the symbolic launch of the kenaf industry in the United States. Once we get started, we’ll never look back.

‘I put nature to work so that we have lots of different varieties of healthy foods to eat. I figure out ways to provide all the things in life we depend upon from our land. I work to make it look pretty. Once nature arrives in all of its various forms to co-habit with each other, they will stay, raise their families and provide for each other and us humans, too. When this happens we have lots of time to play, do art and other things we want to do.’

Mr. Lawrason is working with Artists, Scientists, Leaders,Teachers, Entrepreneurs and Investors as a visionaryguide and team builder for projects that can help makethis a better world.
