New biodiesel seed crop

Who would of thought that a weed the we spray to get rid of could wind up as a biodiesel crop!

Thanks for the article. As I'm new to this forum I was wondering if there was anything in the archives which discusses the oil yield/acre of various crops? Thanks, looking forward to learning a lot here.

Welcome to the biodiesel forum. I did a quick search and didn't find much.

You can find a nice chart here: Vegetable oil yields, characteristics: Journey to Forever

I don't like to quote that site much, to much misinformation....................

But the yield chart is pretty close. Where I live we raise canola. Local yields of 4,000lb + /acre are common here. A 100 acre pivot will generate about 20,000 GALLONS of B-100 per year.

Thanks, that's a good start. That seems like a pretty good return with the canola. Does it go by a different name, I didn't see it on the chart. I was thinking about flax. I guess a lot depends on where you are, soil conditions, weather, growing season, etc.

Canola is rapeseed.
Understand why no one uses that name anymore?
