Project objectives from proposal:
1) Demonstrate the feasibility of producing biodiesel fuel using a locally grown oilseed crop [i.e. canola] as a source of raw material.
2) Identify and overcome whatever constraints are encountered in production in a sustainable and community conscious manner.
3) Enumerate costs and returns on production and communicate said results to farmers in New England and the Northeast.
4) Identify varieties of canola that would be most promising for production in New England.
