JATROPHA CURCAS AS A FEEDSTOCK FOR BIODIESEL:
Jatropha has received a great deal of interest in the past few years. There are several important aspects of growing jatropha as a biofuel:
Fertilizer helps produce the largest crops, and the plants grow best in sandy loam that is well drained. Jatropha grows in tropical and sub-tropical areas, and is a hardy perennial.
Seedcake makes an excellent fertilizer when sprayed back on fields, or can be pelletized for use as fuel.
AGRI- FUEL has premier seeds which are documented. The negative publicity surrounding jatropha is mostly attributable to the quality of the strains planted--which of course depends on the quality of the seeds planted. Old seeds scraped up from the side of the road or seeds purchased from unknown or unreliable sources can produce low yields.
Seed selection is the most important aspect of your whole green fuel operation; the better the seed the better the harvest.
