Jordan is a developing non-oil production country and its basic energy requirements are obtained from abroad as imported oil and petroleum products. For long-term security, a requirement for Jordan is to reduce the dependence on imported oil by developing clean, safe, renewable energy systems and energy conservation programs. Biomass cultivation can be an effective renewable energy source to be utilized. However, the use of biomass as an energy source should not prejudice the supply of food… 
Investigating the Energy Value of Jojoba as an Alternative Renewable Energy Source
This study was conducted to investigate energy value of jojoba seeds obtained from plants cultivated in Jordan. Solvent extraction was employed with different extraction solvents (polar and non
Evaluation of transgenic lines of field pepperweed (Lepidium campestre L.)
TLDR
This work focused on analyzes and evaluation of different transgenic lines of field pepperweed, seen as a weed in the agriculture sector, and showed that the oil content could be increased through overexpression of both WRI1 and hemoglobin like genes.
Wild Genetic Resources of Minor Oil and Rubber Crops
Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis (Link) C. K. Schneid), lesquerella (Physaria fendleri (A. Gray) O’Kane & Al-Shehbaz), and guayule (Parthenium argentatum A. Gray) originate from semiarid climate zones of
Lipids in seeds of oat (Avena spp.), a potential oil crop
TLDR
An oat cultivar which is capable of accumulating high amounts of oil in the endosperm was shown to be also efficient in utilizing these reserves upon germination, and the results aimed at development of an Agrobacterium-mediated oat transformation protocol are presented.
Effect of Gibberellic Acid and Some Natural Compounds Application on Vegetative Growth , Yield and Fruit Characteristics of Jojoba
This study was carried out during 2014 and 2015 seasons in a private orchard of Jojoba located at Mout, El-Dakhla, New Valley Governorate to examine the effects of GA3 (25, 50 and 100 ppm), camphor
