    Thank you

  2. Could anyone help me with the technology to detoxify Jatropha seedcake to use it as animal feed???

  3. Jatropha is a plant of today as every body talk about it.
    Unfortunately, it is facing criticism today due to overpublicity in the last 3-4 years. As it was in lime light and hence exposed for this kind of attention.
    There are no quality seeds probably anywhere in the world as there are no released variety or hybrids unlike other crops.
    Any seed that is available in the market is being used for raising plantations. It is indeed going to be like “Gambling”. Investors on mega projects should be careful in their investment.
