Increased Oil Yield in Oilseed Crops for Enhanced Biodiesel Production

Biodiesel is produced from a wide variety of oilseed crops. In Europe, canola is the major biodiesel crop while in the U.S. soybeans dominates. Montana State University and USDA researchers have developed a protein that can be expressed in a variety of oilseed crops to increase the oil yield by as much as 40%. The technology has been demonstrated in camelina, corn and soybeans and is expected to work for a broad range of oilseed plants including biodiesel and cereal crops. Nick Zelver 406-994-7706
