Seeking a solution to this weed problem. Anyone down under having problems as well? Is it the same as the Physic nut,or Castor oil? Or is it a $ for fuel issue. Has anyone seen the small diesel car from Ford released in India, prior to America’s energy shortage (you know the one, the one they haven’t released in the states), Has anyone tried making biodiesel from it? I wonder what’s the yield of seed per acre I wonder? No worries, Its undeniably related Palma Christi, Jatropha Curcas castor riccinnis(sp) all of which are high yielding non food crops being explored globally by industrial farm/capitalists etc. Or they are making it up, am I going anywhere with this?

Have a look what's going on down under. They don't grow crops especially to make diesel from, just collecting used oils from fish and chips outlets. The Casteroil plant is highly toxic and so hard to harvest. That weed is best to eradicate instead of cultivate. It is a real menace in our rainforests.
