5th 5-day Global Jatropha Hi-tech Integrated Nonfood Biodiesel Farming & Technology Training Programme
The 5th Global Jatropha 3.0 Integrated Nonfood Biodiesel Farming & Technology Training Programme is dedicated to multifeedstocks for building a sustainable biodiesel industry and is designed to educate all stakeholders about critical issue of availability of right feedstock at right cost to make biodiesel a long-term business opportunity
There is a significant potential for sustainable aviation fuel based on jatropha-curcas. , if cultivated properly, jatropha can deliver strong environmental and socio-economic 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. This is vital to helping developers to deliver better social, environmental, and economic sustainability outcomes from jatropha cultivation.
The Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) is working towards scientific commercialization of nonfood biodiesel trees/crops that will lend credibility; reliability and scalability with regards to food security, energy security and sustainable development and carbon savings. The CJP for Failsafe Energy Farming (www.jatrophabiodiesel.org ) was created in 2003 , the first entity to introduce commercial farming of Jatropha and since then working as a platform for multidisciplinary multifeedstocks research into all aspects of nonfood energy farming. The 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 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. 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. 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.
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 Global JATROPHAWORLD 2012, the 5th 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 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.

JatrophaWorld 2012 will showcase agricultural advancement to grow the jatropha and other 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
The programe shall highlight that how scientific selection of site and superior seed strain can ensure a successful Fuel Farms and can meet all the three criteria any environmentally sustainable fuel must meet. These are social, technical and commercial. The invaluable insights provided by experts/scientists will help our trainees to better understand the sustainability of this potential jet fuel source”.
“The Global JatrophaWorld 2012 is a must attend Programme as it is a programme where you shall study & learn promising biodiesel crops apart from jatropha oil crops in totality from the top scientists, experts and technologists; where you shall understand the nonfood oil crop Science and Obtain accurate and authentic information; where you shall updates on latest technological developments and evaluate the biodiesel investment profitability as this is the only platform to understand & learn, to plan and execute, the best expertise to discuss and analyze the present and future dynamics of Jatropha, other nonfood oil crops” .
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
With Biodiesel crops cultivation becoming an intensifying worldwide trend, how to ‘Do It IN Right Way’ dominated the entire training, with discussions centering on the best practices in oil crops for maximum returns. All the trainees who attended were glad to have had the opportunity to take their learning beyond the air-conditioned comfort of the conference room, and out into the actual field where they were able to see, touch, feel and do Jatropha planting first-hand
JatrophaWorld India 2012 promises to have something for everyone interested in developing, growing and utilizing nonfood feedstock for the production of biodiesel.
