The planned biofuels increase will be a boon for the farm sector, which will see
production of biofuel crops jump from today's 320,000 hectares to more than 1.2 million
hectares by 2007. Three-quarters of current biofuel production is rapeseed-based
"diester," a vegetable oil-sourced diesel fuel known as "bio-diesel" in other parts of
Europe, while the remainder is comprised of ethanol sourced from a variety of crops,
including beetroot, sugar cane, corn, potato, and wheat, according to government data.
