The Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) intensified its collaborative research approach with regards to perennial oil seeds bearing tree like Pongamia Pinnata, Moringa oliferia, Jojoba, simarouba, etc. in combination with annual nonfood oil crops like castor, flax, safflower, camelina, etc to have more oil yield per ha and to improve their product. The CJP’s mission is to perform cutting-edge plant science research in genetics, breeding and horticulture, and further develop technologies to allow for the economic commercialization and sustainability of energy farms globally. In essence, CJP scientists are continuously working on enhanced genetics, agronomics and horticulture sciences to drive new varieties, more knowledge around the plant’s nutritional requirements and more science-based processes for the care and custody of the plant and have achieved reliable and scalable results in energy farming.
Even a superior genotype variety planted in inadequate soil and improperly cared for, will be unable to reach its potential and will create dissatisfied stakeholders. If the development focus is properly balanced, the species will go through a series of improvements to continually enhance the characteristics. Improvement in yield, reduction in inputs or resistance to pests and diseases is an ongoing process which needs time. Jatropha is expected to be the first plant commercialized utilizing modern science. The improvements with applied science will accelerate its rapid improvement. CJP to provide the right steps to start the successful business ensuring that this crop is planted in the right way and with due cares to what’s possible in terms of sustainable farming techniques. Based on its proprietary knowledge plant science expertise enhanced technology and extensive experience and by integrating technical and managerial issues CJP has developed Jatropha Agricultural Training package to deliver Competencies through Qualified trainers with a practical ‘hands on’ approach.
CJP’s new Biodiesel crops like castor, flax, moringa, pongamia, jojoba, simarouba are poised for commercialization as the newest, greatest biodiesel feedstock as these crops can produce the greatest amount of feedstock for the lowest input and cost. There are many promising crops on the horizon, but they need to be properly vetted scientifically. Good scientific research done by CJP’s scientists has shown that how oilseed crops grow best across different soil conditions and climates, and how they fit into existing production systems determining what consequences might result from growing these crops in terms of sustainability
New Crops and second harvests.
Worldwide about 600 million hectares of land that has fallen out of agricultural production, is semiarid and prone to drought CJP’s dedicated energy crops such as Pongamia Pinnata, Castor, Moringa, Jojoba, simarouba can be grown on such land could dramatically increase biofuel crop production without competing for land used for food crops. Bringing a new high-yield crop to growers or a crop that has worked spectacularly well elsewhere and now works in local conditions. Or,increasingly, bringing new rotation crops, or used in place of cover crops to bring in a second harvest.Emergence of the new crops 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. CJP’S Next Global JATROPHAWORLD 2013, the 6th Global Jatropha 3.0 Integrated Nonfood Biodiesel Farming & Technology Training Programme is all set to introduce you the real world of JATROPHA CURCAS” where the attendees shall also have the opportunity to interact with these new crops science, agronomy and horticulture technology etc. as have also been included in the course. JATROPHAWORLD 2013 is to be held at Jaipur, Rajasthan from September 23-27, 2013. CJP has brought together the best expertise and brightest brains to discuss and analyze the present and future dynamics of Jatropha. Attendees will be able to increase their knowledge about Jatropha and alternative energy and also learn about other most important nonfood biodiesel as referred herein from experts.

JatrophaWorld 2013 will showcase agricultural advancement to grow the nonfood oil crops effectively with proper resources i.e. balancing resources to end up with a sustainable long-term solution without harming the environment. The focus of the programme shall remain on three major thrust areas—genetics, agronomics and horticulture practices—so the plant will grow with optimal productivity. While agronomic work is an important first step in the development of any new crop, for new oilseeds to reach commercialization, several other factors need to be addressed. With any of these crops, there is definitely an education curve for producers to be able to understand how it fits into their rotation
World biodiesel industry experts anticipate that there is going to be more demand for oilseeds, not only going to biodiesel but also into the technology that can covert those agricultural oils into products such as jet fuel. One of the really good things is biojet fuels and non-ester renewable diesels are all new market opportunities being created, which helps to send market signals all the way up the supply chain to the growers and producers
JatrophaWorld 2013 promises to have something for everyone interested in developing, growing and utilizing nonfood feedstock for the production of biodiesel. JatrophaWorld 2013 is unique because of the capability to deliver an integrated “One Stop Solution” for nonfood oil crops Agri-business operations to the agricultural and energy sector worldwide.
JatrophaWorld 2013 will pinpoint the agronomy, technology and economics of nonfood biofuel projects for your own business needs! Time is winding down and you will want to sign up early as we expect available seats to fill up fast. Don’t forget to register for JATROPHAWORLD TRAINING 2013 today
