The competitiveness and sustainability for kenaf fiber in Bonorowo field is not only concerned on the satisfaction of both customer request and quality preference but also related to the environment. This research proposed to find out the use of LCA on the evaluation of environmental consequences and the using of QFD due to improvement strategies related to kenaf plants growth until the kenaf fiber has been produced in the of bonorowo Laren-Lamongan. Based on the HoQ calculation there are 8 VoC attributes, 2 attributes on environmental aspects and 6 attributes on quality aspects. Two environmental aspects attributes came from the highest LCA results, while 6 quality attributes came from literature and discussions with farmer groups. There are 20 technical responses used as the basis for improvement. The technical response should be followed up by the kenaf farmer groups in the Laren bonorowo field is the use of organic fertilizers, conducting rebonery, drying kenaf fibers in the hot sun, providing indoor winds, weed control (use of herbicides or weeding), installing rat traps in the planting area, harvesting kenaf stalks on time, retting using microbial cultures, using closed tub colt, increasing the price of dry kenaf fiber by Rp. 100/ kg, employing Laren mothers during the retting process, the maximum diameter of kenaf stem ties is 20 cm during the retting process, and the use of personal protective equipment (mask / faceshield) when spraying pesticides and fertilizing.
