Company Introduction

Seed/saplings required: Elite quality seeds of jatropha with high percentage of germination and saplings

Soil type required: best in sandy well drained soils. Can withstand very poor soils and grow in saline conditions. It is a pioneer plant. So one should just plant it. Jatropha has the advantage that being a tree, it is to be planted only once, after which one has just to go to the plantation to harvest it up-to 40-50 years.

Climates required: Jatropha curcas is found in the tropics and subtropics and likes heat, although it does
Well even in lower temperatures and can withstand a light frost. Its water requirement is extremely low and it can stand long periods of drought.

Cost per acre: it is a very difficult to work out in detail. It depends on the situation of origin. If one has to clear a forest first, it may be expensive. If one can plant the seedlings just into the grass, it is cheaper.

Cost of plantation: it has been estimated to be rs.11000.00 per acre, inclusive of site preparation, digging of pits, fertiliser and manure, cost of raising nursery and planting, irrigation, de-weeding, plant protection plantation and maintenance for one year, training, extension, overheads etc.

Best way: it is recommended to grow seedlings in a nursery and to plant the 3-4 months old
Seedlings at the beginning of the rainy season. You get almost a yearly vegetation cycle ahead to normal plantation. It is also the most expensive way.

Improving nursery: Silivicultural techniques and selecting high yield seeds can solve the problem.

Cultivation period: The best way(also the most expensive) is to grow seedlings in a nursery
And to plant the 3-4 months old seedlings at the beginning of the rainy season.
It is possible to get almost a yearly vegetation cycle ahead to normal plantation.

Harvesting period: harvesting starts about 2 - 3 months after beginning of the rainy season
