    Many crops used for biofuels are food staples, such as corn and soybeans, and their use in fuel production causes food prices to soar. For this reason the use of non-food crops is being heavily researched. Camelina is a crop which grows well in arid climates, needing little fertilization or pesticide application. Camelina oil has a longer “shelf life” than biodiesel, as well. North Dakota and Montana are currently raising camelina crops and seeking to expand their acreage. It is touted as the best crop for biofuels in use today.
