  • The potential biofuel crop Jatropha curcas has very low tolerance to low temperatures, which is the bottleneck for its cultivation and commercialization.
  • Jatropha curcas is a deciduous oil tree species and widely distributed in tropical and subtropical areas, especially in Central and South America, Africa, India and Southeast Asia. As one of the most important energy plants, J. curcas has been considered as a drought-resistant plant and can survive in marginal land.
  • possibly due to its tropical origin, J. curcas is a chilling sensitive plant and its sensitivity to chilling stress restricts its extensive cultivation and distribution, which further severely inhibits our ability to commercially exploit this plant. [1] [2].
