Breeding Success

JatroSolutions elite jatropha hybrid cultivars have demonstrated outstanding performance in the field. Both in the edible and non-edible jatropha segments they show impressive and augmenting seed yields over the years.

 

In the warm and arid tropics, the seed yields of the new hybrids in the biofuel segment were 4 times higher than those of the best selected line cultivars and 14 times higher than those of wild jatropha accessions.

 

Among edible jatropha plants lacking toxic compounds (phorbol esters), edible hybrid cultivars had 4-5 times higher nut yields than the best selected line cultivars.
