Development of Moringa as a biofuel crop has largely been underway in India, at CJP where scientists have been assessing new crops to support sustainable rural development. CJP is dedicated to the development of oil seed bearing trees - non-food multiple vegetable oil plantation and technologies in order to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, bring greater control and security of fuel supply and reduce dangerous climate changing emissions, including CO2. Global warming, greenhouse gas , food-versus-fuel, indirect land use change, deforestation—with these critical issues in the spotlight, the feedstock deficit -plagued industry badly needs less expensive feedstock in form of non-food crop like Moringa oleifera & others For more visit http://www.jatrophaworld.org

China To Double Ethanol Production by 2020
On December 5, 2016, China`s National Energy Administration (NEA) published a five-year plan that aims to increase ethanol production to four million tons by 2020 despite the government maintaining strict control over the use of food grains. The target remains unchanged from the previous five-year plan that ended in 2015. NEA intends to increase the share of non-fossil fuel consumption from 12 percent to 15 percent by 2020, in part through the vigorous development of fiber ethanol from the inedible parts of...
The Best Practices for Using Plant Residues
Plant residue are crop materials such as stems, leaves, and roots, that are left on the field after the harvest. In the past, farmers considered crop residue to be trash, that was usually destroyed by fire. However, today this practice is not recommended and highly is not used by farmers. There are two different ways to manage crop residues. The first method is tillage prior planting when plant residues are incorporated into the soil. Another modern farming practice is reduced tillage or no-till farming, where...
Manage Your Farm Inventory with Agrivi Software
Every farmer, whether on a small family farm or with large farm production, has an inventory of all his farm materials; crop seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, fuel, harvested crops and other farm items. Whatever the size of his production, he uses those materials on fields and thus has the necessity to keep records of their inventory level. In farm management, inventory plays a key role. It’s important for farmers to know at any moment the exact amount of items. Farmers can achieve that with Agrivi farm...
High Technology that Revolutionized Farming
How are we going to feed the growing population by 2050? How we are going to double our food supply and how will the farming be sustainable? All the answers involve farm technology. Farm technology creates the ability to grow plants that are disease resistant, to use the equipment that can target individual crops and strengthen the rice that can survive drought and flooding and literally save lives. Farming may be one of the oldest most traditional occupations known to man, but today it’s on a cutting...
University Of Michigan Researcher Publishes Controversial Study That Finds Gasoline Produces Fewer ...
On August 25, 2016, researchers at the University of Michigan, led by research professor John M. DeCicco, Ph.D., published "Carbon balance effects of U.S. biofuel production and use," a study examining the impact of biofuel production on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The study, funded in part by the American Petroleum Institute, examined USDA crop-production data and determined that the increasing use of biofuels has resulted in a net increase of CO2 emissions, with only 37 percent of CO2 emissions from biofuel...
