Hi like your idea - would you be interested in collaborating? Azolla which doubles in biomass every few days is a very efficient biofuel can produce around 25,000 litres per hectare in real world settings, doesn't displace crops or forests as water based (one of the main issues with biofuels) and it stores so much CO2 and nitrogen as it grows it can give biofuel a further halo

Hello Yunus Abubakar,
Whenever you come across an important information on the internet try and study it very well, understanding and synthesize your own knowledge from it together with other works you might have obtain from other entirely different sources... Avoid copying and paste work, it is void of any intellectual contribution.

Hello Yunus Abubakar,
I believe you are "doubling up" for a hard work on the title: "Eliminating crop bio-fuels could free up as much as 9% of land area" First and foremost, work on your vision: Make the phrase: "Eliminating biofuels" more meaningful...You do not want to "eliminate biofuels"... You want to eliminate fossil fuels and replace them with biofuels,,,
Now, try to form Team/Partnerships with organizations that could help promoting your work.
Give a full description of your selected place – Maiduguri, Borno State of Nigeria. Provide information that would be helpful for an outsider who has never been to Maiduguri Town so that a visitor can better understand the area.
Go ahead and describe the current (2020) and the future (2050) challenges that food system faces in Maiduguri. Afterwards, explain clearly how your Vision will address the challenges described in the previous question.
In addition, provide a high level description of how Maiduguri and the lives of its People will be different in 30 years to come (2050) than they are at present (2020).
Finally, how do you describe your Vision for a regenerative and nourishing food future Maiduguri and its People for 2050?
Try to work hard… Wishing you the very best Yunus.
Regards,
Md Auwal Hassan
