Abstract

Jatropha ( Jatropha curcas L.) is a member of Euphorbeaceae family with multiple attributes and enormous prospective. Jatropha is now being credited as the most promising biofuel crop. It has been documented as the most suitable oilproducing plant due to its variety of potential attribute among lots of oil seedbearing species. The oil can be extracted from the seeds of Jatropha plant and used as feedstock for bio-diesel production and other use of jatropha oil is for making soap, adhesive, foam, composite, surface coating, coloring agents, etc. Jatropha roots, shoot latex, leaf, and kernel oil have curative characteristics. Fruit shell and seed cake can be used as organic fertilizer as well as animal feed upon detoxification because they are rich in N, P, and K. Jatropha can save cost of fuel import, create employment opportunity, reduce environmental pollution, and improve the financial condition of rural peoples. Research is required to know the actual potentiality of jatropha products. Much more research on variety development and cultivation technology is needed to be done to increase seed yield of Jatropha which will enhance its economic sustainability.
