Towards a more sustainable path for future fuel

India, June 20,2012 -- There is a significant potential for sustainable aviation fuel based on jatropha-curcas. If cultivated properly, jatropha can deliver strong environmental and socioeconomic benefits across the globe and greenhouse gas reductions of up to 60 percent when compared to petroleum-based jet fuel. But a lack of understanding of the Jatropha Curcas Plant and reliable information; lack of QPM inputs; lack of Best Agricultural Practices and expertise & poor management techniques ; many projects are only achieving mediocre results. The scientific selection of land, the right genetics and package of practices have significant impact on the economics of Jatropha adoption. If low quality planting material and low care is taken, the Internal Rate of Return (IRR) could be less than 10%, whereas with good quality planting material and good care, the IRR will be more than 35%.

Center for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) started commercial farming of Jatropha from wild selected seeds 1.0 in 2003 and now reached with improved enhanced Jatropha 3.0 with more oil and more yield. 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 Jatropha 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. The CJP’s goal is to triple Jatropha yields within 10 years, increase the oil content to 48 percent and in combination of other crops the target oil yield is 1500 gallon per ha. Further, to increase the quality of the oils and other products produced—while minimizing inputs including pesticides and fertilizers.

Enhanced And Improved Cultivar:

The years of continuous research, experiments and in cultivating and breeding of Jatropha curcas and other biofuel crops, CJP was able to develop a systematic breeding and cultivar development strategy. Newly bred cultivars are extensively tested in multi-location trials and true to type seeds are being produced with high quality standard 

JCLMax3™ Elite HYV Jatropha Improved Seeds

Through its JCLMax3™ improved seed product line, CJP provides growers the highest yielding, most uniform and profitable Jatropha in the world. Improved seeds result in greater yield, uniformity and vigor while significantly reducing Plantation costs.  JCLMax3™ improved varieties have been tested and developed for a range of climatic and soil conditions. Through its research and development program, CJP continues to expand the regions for which JCLMax3™ improved seeds are available in more than 65 countries

DI03SAP™   Elite HYV Pongamia Saplings

CJP have developed   DI03SAPÔ the Process of cloning and maintaining an Elite sapling. It has been created from over a decade of research in horticulture and agriculture with the best characteristics of yield, survivability and longevity. Standard Package of Practices (SOP) enable DI03SAP ™ sapling to enhance productivity to achieve greater yields over the lifetime of the plantation with the right crop inputs and management

MO03SAP™ Elite HYV Moringa Saplings

CJP have further developed   MO03SAP™ the Process of cloning and maintaining an Elite sapling. It has been created from over a decade of research in horticulture and agriculture with the best characteristics of yield, survivability and longevity. Standred Package of Practices (SOP) enable MO03SAP ™ sapling to enhance productivity to achieve greater yields over the lifetime of the plantation with the right crop inputs and management

 

JO03Rc™ Identified Elite Class 1 Jojoba Rooted Cuttings

 

With Scientific advancement CJP has selectively bred certain high yielding jojoba plants and developed our identified high-yielding jojoba Rooted Cutting Plants for creating FAIL SAFE JOJOBA FARM with Standard Package of Practices (SOP) enable JO03Rc ™  Rooted Cutting sapling to enhance productivity to achieve greater yields over the lifetime of the plantation with the right crop inputs and management

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. So while Jatropha agriculture continues to be a new and exciting alternative energy source, and the world continues to watch its development closely, there are still many misnomers about where it should be grown, how to grow it and what resources the plant needs to achieve commercially productive yields. 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.

 

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 JATROPHAWORLD 2012, the 5th Global Jatropha Hi-tech 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 2012 is to be held at Jaipur, Rajasthan from September 5-9, 2012. 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.
