Kenaf is 3-5 times more productive per unit area than pulpwood trees producing pulp with quality equal to or superior to that of many woody species. In this study 77 Hibiscus cannabinus germplasm including two checks was evaluate to identify the genotype suitable for paper pulp. The experimental materials were grown in a randomized block design with three replications at the Tamil Nadu Rice Research Institute, Aduthurai for All India Jute & Allied Fibres during 2016.       The analysis of variance revealed significant difference among the genotypes for all the three characters. A narrow range of difference between phenotypic coefficient of variation PCV and genotypic coefficient of variation. GCV has recorded for Plant height (9.78 to 7.11), Basal Diameter (22.41 to 19.66) and fibre yield (26.70 to  25.14) indicating less environmental influence on the phenotypic experiment of these characters and they are mostly governed by genetic factors. Hence selection of derived character simply on the phenotypic value may be effective. High h2 with high GA for basal diameter and fibre yield indicating the predominance of additive gene effects on such traits. This study indicates that basal diameter and fibre yield with high GA should be taken in consideration during selection of higher yield.
