An Oil 'Plant' that produces Diesel!

A hedge plant was discovered to have fuel content that can be used for energizing motor vehicles. This drought and pest resistant plant is Jatropha (Jatropha curcas)! Its seeds contain the ‘Biodiesel’ up to 40%. It may also be called Biodiesel ‘Plant’ as it lives up to forty years to produce the diesel! It is well known as biodiesel ‘plant’ rather than as Jatropha. At this time of acute oil crisis, it does fit here to say it as a Wonder World Wide Wild plant!
