Oil from oilseeds such as rapeseed, corn oil or sunflower oil, needs to be esterified to reduce its viscosity close to that of diesel before use in a diesel engine. The oil from oilseeds cannot be regarded as a potentially economic byproduct in the same way as sugarcane bagasse, a byproduct of sugar manufacture used as feed stock for manufacture of car alcohol fuel, or straw from cereals, used as fuel in boilers, are so regarded.
As such, sowing and fertilizing may be combined in one field operation, as is common in cereal production where semi-continuous bands of seeds and fertilizers are planted close together at shallow depths in closely spaced rows (typically 175 mm apart). Of course, the fertilizer may also be applied separately (from the seed) in a corn drill style applicator.
