"Sen Yang, a professor from China Agricultural University, told a conference last week that cassava alone could supply as much as 4 million tonnes of fuel ethanol in China.
China could grow cassava also on 1 million hectares (2.471 million acres) of barren land, which would add 21 million tonnes to the crop, she said. There was also scope to achieve another 7 million tonnes by raising yields."
