I wanted to ask some questions about bio diesel. What are
peoples feelings about this in general? Specifically my questions are
about the sustainability aspects of it.
1) I know that soybeans are legumenous and fix their own nitrogen. Does
this mean that in general they don't need to be fertilized? Can they be
fit into a rotation to eliminate the need to fertilize?
2) How many gallons of soybean oil does a low or non fertilized acre
3) Is there a small scale way of producing soybean oil from soybeans?
I just read that president clinton signed an executive order that allows
for an 20/80 soybean oil/petroleum blend to be used in all federal and
state fleets of cars. I know that with the current state of soybean
farming this could probably do more damage than it is worth. Is there
any safe way to grow a lot of these bio oil crops?
Thanks for your help.
