SEEDS & PLANTS

Global Leaf Energy Corp., (GLE) and our partners have been working on producing improved strains and ultimately a certified cultivar of Jatropha Curcas expects to offer selected hybrids seeds and cloned plants for the establishment of commercial plantations. Please contact us for more information.

JATROPHA CURCAS SEEDS

Our Superior high yielding Jatropha Curcas seeds will:

  • Reach first harvest after 8 months with full production in their 5th year
  • Have a life-span of 60 years, while producing seed for up to 50 years
  • Be freshly harvested and professionally packed & shipped
  • Exceed guaranteed 90% germination rate
  • Produce fruit with high oil content (60%) – with proper management
  • Have selected genetics from plants that have produced over 10 Tons of Oil per Hectare, per Year. (10 – 15kgs per tree at maturity)

Seed production of our high yielding Jatropha Curcas seeds

With correct management, soil and plant nutrition along with adequate moisture our seeds will achieve the following yields planted at 3,030 plants/ha

  • 1st year oil yield/Ha 4.5 tones
  • 2nd year oil yield/Ha 9.0 tones
  • 3rd year oil yield/Ha 13.5 tones
  • 4th+ year oil yield/Ha 15.0 tones

PROPAGATION AND CULTIVATION

The advantage of Jatropha Curcas seeds over Jatropha Curcas cuttings

Jatropha Curcas

grows readily from seeds or cuttings. However trees propagated from cuttings have a shorter productive lifespan and lower drought/disease resistance than plants propagated from seed. Also, Jatropha Curcas trees produced from cuttings do not produce true taproots. Instead, they produce pseudo-taproots (surface roots) that may penetrate much less than half the depth of soil as taproots produced on trees grown from seed.

Climate

Ideal temperature range is 20-40 degrees C; however temperatures down to 10 degrees and up to 50 degrees are acceptable. We do not recommend planting in areas with a history of frost. Ideal rainfall is over 1,000-1500 mm/yr. however 600-3,000mm/yr. is acceptable. Ideal dry months not exceeding 4 months but up to 7 months without rain is acceptable.
