The goal of this one-year project was to assess the potential production and processing of oil seed and sugar-containing crops for use as a renewable energy source on a scale that would support small groups of local farmers working together. This report summarizes what was learned in a short time about the agronomic, economic, and regulatory aspects of these crops and processes, and while there appears to be a lot of promise, many unresolved issues were identified, and much work remains to be done.
