The emerging biofuel sector has drawn great interest as an alternative source of fuel for transportation. The expansion of biofuels greatly impacts world agricultural markets, since currently, the primary feedstocks for ethanol and biodiesel production are field crops and their derived products.

The long-term potential for developing first-generation biofuels in many countries depends on a large and constant supply of feedstocks.
