Castor Oil StructureIntroduction
Castor is a plant that is commercially very important to the world. Having known that how useful is the oil obtained from it, it must also be known that the castor seed oil cake is very useful manure to other crops. This crop needs a tropical type of climate to develop. That’s why the castor is largely found in the countries lying in the tropical belt of the world. To derive the oil from the seeds of the plant, the processes of expression or decoction are used to press the seeds but the seeds as a whole are also traded in the market. The seeds generally contain 48% oil content and the rest becomes the part of oil cake.

World’s average total production of Castor seed figures around 12.5 lakh tons and is cultivated in more than 30 countries of the world. India is the world’s largest producer of castor and its derivatives contributing to almost 65% share. Like wise India is also the leading producer of castor seed oil, which has its annual world production hovering around 5.5 lakh tons. Due to its end number of uses in various industries, castor oil has a high level of demand in the world that is still constantly rising at 3 to 5 % per annum.

In India, it is grown as a khariff crop and is planted generally during the months of July and August. The crop has a duration period of 4 to 5 months and is generally harvested in the months of December and January. However the sowing and harvesting periods within the country differ according to the different regions where the crop is grown. Also, the region only decides that whether the crop is to be grown as a sole crop or a mixed crop. It starts to come to the market from October and comes till April.
