Soaring prices of fossil fuels and environmental pollution associated with their use, has led to worldwide interest in the production and use of bio-fuels. Both developed and developing countries have made a mix of policies, which have triggered public and private investments in bio-fuel crop research and development and bio-fuels production. In this article, we discuss the potential benefits of bio-fuels in reducing environment pollution and contributing to the energy security and the crop options and crop research and development interventions required to generate feedstocks to produce bio-fuels to meet projected demand without compromising food/fodder security in developing countries with special reference to China and India.
