Researchers turning sunflower oil into biodiesel
Sunflowers provide more biodiesel potential in the Northeast than soybeans. The idea is to create a viable agriculture program that allows farmers to produce their own fuel for tractors and other farm equipment. Researchers are hoping to produce 130 gallons of biodiesel per acre of sunflowers. If successful, farmers could also use the oil to heat their homes.
