Couple oil crop cultivation technology

Couple Oil Crop Cultivation Technology
The couple crop poised to feed the biodiesel industries
The years of continuous research, experiments and trials have given CJP a big breakthrough in finding a Failsafe, Solid and a viable alternative feedstock for biodiesel in combination with Jatropha
We have been promoting Jatropha since 2003 that has shown promise as alternative biodiesel feedstock because it doesn’t compete with crop acres. Jatropha is a high oil-yielding perennial that grows where many food crops don’t; moreover, it is a sustainable alternative to using food crops for biofuels. Jatropha and other nonfood biodiesel crops shows potential as a new biofuels crop, with big new development projects and plantations involving thousands and hundreds of thousands of acres have been planned with investments of billions of dollars.
No single feedstock is likely to solve the supply issues facing the biodiesel industry. We need sustainable, cost-effective and carbon savings feedstocks like Jatropha, Pongamia, castor, Simarouba, neem, Madhuca etc.
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 i. e. is a right oil crop that is planted in the right way with Jatropha and with due care to what’s possible in terms of sustainable farming techniques
Nothing drives innovation like need.
The results of a number of experiments and trials have given us a big break through
Finally we got it
The couple crop has been identified, tried and tested
A revolutionary mile stone: Great Success!!!
Emergence of the combination crop system may change the entire scenario of the biodiesel industry
The twin oil crop in the same acreage of the land
Both non- food but one can feed
Both requires low inputs
Both hardy, drought resistant and pest resistant
Double the output , from 1 ha 1350 gallon oil can be obtained
We have released the commercial cultivation of the couple crop
