The harvest of native materials initiated earlier days on average than the material Nordestina BRS dayspresenting the material Monteria earlier age days. Traditional Ayurvedic and siddha medicine considers castor oil the king of medicinals for curing arthritic diseases.

It has been largely replaced by synthetic oils that are more stable and less toxic. It does not mix well with petroleum products, particularly at low temperatures, but mixes better with the methanol based fuels used in glow model engines.

Currently, the department of Cordoba, where the castor grows wild in most parts of the territory, reaching heights up to 4 m and there is no knowledge on the productive performance in terms of seeds and oils of native and imported materials that could be grown in warm weather conditions and silty clay soils that characterize this region IGAC, Ricinus communisthe castor bean [1] or castor oil plant[2] is a species of perennial flowering plant in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae.

The time of initial flowering and height of insertion of the first raceme were also determined. According to Zuchi et al. Plants with the dark leaves can be found growing next to those with green leaves, so there is most likely only a single gene controlling the production of the pigment in some varieties. In addition to the high potential of castor bean for oil production, which has a wide range of applications in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and the possibility of its usage as raw material for biofuel production Savy Filho,castor bean by-products can also be used.

However, the greater the evaporative demand of the atmosphere, the higher the need for water flow in the Soil-Plant-Atmosphere system will be Santos and Carlesso, Energy balance trial allows to carefully allocating any inputs for field production of the crop as well as, dosing precisely the amount of energy required for each process, com,unis determining the efficiency when energy transformation inside the crop is required for a certain task.


Table 2 Energy balance for an oil seed rape crop projected to obtain biodiesel. Review of existing and emerging technologies for the production of biofuels in developing hiyuerilla. In a study with castor bean plants communiz water stress, Heckenberger et al. Castor bean plant transpiration rate, as a function of time, was reduced significantly in the three treatments Figure 2.

Am J Emerg Med. Due to the fact that the pots were covered with aluminum foil, soil water evaporation E was considered null and plant transpiration T calculated according to the water balance equation, as described above.

Ricinus communis

BRS Energy vegetative period, indicating that the greater the water availability, the longest this cycle period will be. In some varieties they start off dark reddish purple or bronze when young, gradually changing to a dark green, sometimes with a reddish tinge, as they mature.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use higuerklla Privacy Policy. The plant is also a very strong trigger for asthma, and allergies to Ricinus are commonplace and severe.

Potencial para el uso directo de los aceites vegetales en los motores de combustion Feasability for riccinus usage of vegetable oils as fuel into internal combustion engines. Parameters b and c of the castor bean plant height growth curve were not influenced by the increase in water tension in the substrate, whereas, parameter a was affected Table 1.

Salt and drought stress signal transduction in plants. By adding the above results to those obtained in the variables beginning of flowering, flowering time, start and end of crop harvest, there is the benefit to the genetic improvement of native materials, Nordestina BRS case, expressed in facilities benefit agronomic management of these cultivars as cash crops.

Evaluation of seed yield and oil contents in four materials of Ricinus communis L.

It also emphasized that the results obtained in this study for the four materials evaluated in comnunis production and oil yield were good. Method Calculating energy balance considers all the energy sources provided for crop production, such as electricity, fuels, energy consumed by the manufacturing processes or other inputs, chemicals – fertilizers and pesticides as well as the labor employed in the production and transformation processes involved, which is compared with energy obtained from fruit, biomass or an end transformed product.


Four castor materials were evaluated in in the middle region of Valle del Sinu, Colombia. Calculating energy balance for higuerilla Ricinus communis L. In Colombia, the castor is com,unis promising species due to the great adaptability in most of its thermal levels, achieving high yields of seed yield and quality of their oils, allowing its application in various industrial sectors Delgado, First bioenergy feedstocks are crop residues while, forest and cellulosic biomass are feasible feedstocks to produce biofuels which rural population already use directly, mainly for heating and cooking; furthermore those low cost and readily available biofuels contribute to alleviate the energy shortage at rural level for isolated communities Borjesson, ; Girard and Fallot, It is the sole species in the monotypic genusRicinusand subtribeRicininae.

Ricinus communis L., 1753

It is important to note that seed production was higher at greater distances from seed, except in Monteria in which material was greater than 1. Global castor seed production is around two million tons per year. By assessing the response of castor bean cv. Abstract With the biodiesel production incentive grant program in Brazil, castor bean Ricinus communis crop has gained greater importance in the agricultural scenario.

The above types of energy can be categorized into three general kinds, according to the technological point of view: Knowledge of the castor bean water demand allows either to adapt the seeding to regions where rainfall is favorable to the crop or to use irrigation in order to meet the crop water needs when it is economically viable.

Por lo tanto, el objetivo de este estudio fue evaluar la respuesta de la higuerilla a diferentes tensiones de agua en el suelo.
