Jatropha curcas (Kattamanakku) is an oil plant. The botanic name Jatropha is derived from Greek, "Jatras" meaning Doctor and "trophe," Nutrition.

It is significant to point out that, the non-edible vegetable oil of Jatropha curcas has the requisite potential of providing a promising and commercially viable alternative to diesel oil since it has desirable physicochemical and performance characteristics comparable to diesel. Cars could be run with Jatropha curcas without requiring much change in design.

Few advantages of jatropha are given below:

* Jatropha is adapted to a wide range of climates and soils.

* It can grow almost on any type of soil whether gravelly, sandy or saline and thrives even on the poorest stony soils and rock crevices.

* It is a drought resistant perennial living up to 50 years.

The tree grows up to a height of 3 meters, which means harvesting is an easy task. A hybrid variety of jatropha could give three harvests an year, compared to two harvests by other varieties of jatropha. It takes two years for a 'Jatropha' sapling to begin producing seeds, and they can produce seeds for up to 30 years. The seeds are crushed to extract raw oil, Jatropha seeds contain about 35% of non-edible oil.

We also provide complete guidance and consultation in the whole process involved in jatropha plantation.
