This is a very positive move by BP and illustrates what the market place can achieve if not hampered by over regulation or government corruption. What I like about this project is that people living in harsh regions of the world can have the opportunity for success. Companies of decent people like BP are to be praised.

What incentives are there for farmers to plant this crop in the U.S. versus any other potential crop? If we look at the U.S. as a fixed agricultural pie (which it is in some respect) then what economic value could this crop provide to farmers that, say, soy beans wouldn't?

Hi Doug, I don’t believe they are considering the US. There are probably few if any locations here that jatropha can be grown since it requires a tropical climate. One should grow whatever produces the most profit per acre so I assume economics will rule. But it might be a boom for others.

The Science OR Discovery Channel had a segment on Jatropha nuts. They're actually planning a 600 acre grove somewhere in Central California as the Jatropha nut can adapt to various climates as the segment presented it.The nut is native to India but it has been demonstrated that it can be grown in places like the Sonora Desert or elsewhere.
