I guess like a lot of the other things, and it would depend a lot on the strains being grown and the care given to the crop–I’ve heard a lot of “tricks” folk use to encourage higher seed yield. I suppose there are also variants in the way the biofuel itself is created, which could also change the answer to this question. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 311 Answers 0 Best Answers 655 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-05-06T14:00:31-04:00Added an answer on May 6, 2020 at 2:00 pm From wiki, here is a table to thoroughly show the difference hemp has in the biofuel industry: calendula 256 305 229 33 cotton 273 325 244 35 hemp 305 363 272 39 soybean 375 446 335 48 coffee 386 459 345 49 flax (linseed) 402 478 359 51 hazelnuts 405 482 362 51 euphorbia 440 524 393 56 pumpkin seed 449 534 401 57 The first column being, kg oil/ha, then liters oil/ha, lbs oil/acre, and US gal/acre 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to can add an answer.
