we could highlight castor seed, which can be cultivated in most of soils. Research states that the yield could reach 3,000 kg /ha year with genetic improvement and with possible introduction of irrigated cultivation.
Transesterification can occur in different temperatures depending on the type of oil employed. The reaction of castor oil with methanol occurs most satisfactorily at temperatures in the range from 20 to 35 Â°C.. So Castor is very suitable as Biofuel Crop
