-The years of continuous research, experiments and trials have given Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) a big break through in the search for a viable alternative feedstock for biodiesel in combination with Jatropha. CJP is the Global authority for scientific commercialization of Jatropha fuel crop.
The Director Plant Science CJP Mr. R.R. Sharma has stated that Jatropha plantation occupy about 50% of the planted land and to utilized the rest of land in sustainable manner we have been experimenting different intercropping options, patterns and agro- technologies. We have been in search of such an inter-crop for Jatropha which should be oil bearing like Jatropha itself without competing with it for food and water and should be capable of fulfilling Jatropha fertilizer requirement and still maintaining soil fertility.
"Finally we got it," said Mr. Sharma. Emergence of the combination crop system may change the entire scenario of the biodiesel industry and shall provide much relief to the industry which desperately in a need of a viable sustainable non-food feed stocks.
Mr. Sharma further added that, "Now we can ensure an oil yield of > 6 tons per ha i.e. same acreage of land may provide double output. The technology termed as COC by CJP shall be released commercially soon."
