That seems like a pretty exciting discovery. The more quickly we quit relying on oil the better! Thanks for sharing.

It would be especially beneficial if Kudzu vine could be processed into ethanol. This grows wild in the southeastern United States without the use of irrigation or fertilizer. It grows quite rapidly, so it might be possible to harvest several crops per year from the same land.
