Free—open access paper: Co-ordinated changes in storage proteins during development and germination of elite seeds of Pongamia pinnata, a versatile biodiesel legume

Seeds of Pongamia pin­nata used as feed­stock for biod­iesel pro­duc­tion and the protein-rich residue is fed to farm anim­als. This paper describes seed devel­op­ment and early ger­min­a­tion in terms of phen­o­logy, pro­tein and reserve accu­mu­la­tion and util­iz­a­tion. The find­ings will under­pin rapid and suc­cess­ful exploit­a­tion of this prom­ising energy and animal feed crop.
