Genetic improvement and commercialization of the African perennial castor (Ricinus communis L.) plant



Genetic improvement and commercialization of the African perennial castor (Ricinus communis L.) plant



Zimbabwe Science News 27(4/6): 42-45



Castor is indigenous to eastern Africa but is now naturalized in most other parts of Africa, being found in Zimbabwe as a multitude of different types along roads, rivers and drains, as well as near villages, homesteads and around farmers' fields. The plant can be grown as a commercial crop for its oil, which has a wide variety of properties, and plants can survive for several years.
