    This report is the final report of WP26 on the annual fibre crops systems as studied in the EU ENFA project (SSPE-CT-2005-006581). The ENFA project aims to develop a dynamic agricultural and forest sector model for the integrated economic and environmental assessment of non-food alternatives in European agriculture and forestry. This report includes a description of fibre crop production chains of long and short fibres, as well as a market description of fibre crop products, with emphasis on flax, hemp and kenaf. Also environmental aspects of these chains and the regulations concerning fibre crops are addressed.
