The objective of this survey of oilseed production from Jatropha and other oilseed-bearing perennials is to contribute by establishing an up-to-date overview based on interviews with producers and industry experts in 2011. This survey of 154 projects yielded a comprehensive database that covers critical aspects such as agronomic settings, agricultural practices, yields, business activities and financing as well as sustainability management. This summary of key facts and figures provides an overview of the 111 commercial Jatropha plantations found to be operational at the time of the survey in mid-2011. It presents key agronomic and economic data points from this sample. The report targets a wide range of stakeholders in governmental and non-governmental organisations, academia, as well as businesses and investors.
