Effects of Agricultural Structure Changes on Profit Development in the Field (Exemplified by the Czech Republic)

Author: Luboš Smrčka; Markéta Arltová;

Abstract: The paper analyses some aspects of the promotion of the use of biofuels, primarily fuel additives. Some conclusions are drawn from the data for the Czech Republic – it is stated primarily that the increasing share of biofuels in fuels has its explicit limits that are not given so much by technological problems as by the capacity for the cultivation of the crops that are used to produce biofuels. The paper concludes, for instance, that any plan to increase the share of renewable sources in diesel fuel above five to sever percent is essentially unfeasible, as it would either require significant imports of materials (rape seeds) or additives (usually rape seed methyl ester), or significant expansion of the land used to grow rapeseed. However, in terms of sustainable management of agricultural land, the areas suitable for rapeseed cultivation are quite limited in the Czech Republic and reached their full capacity viable in terms of considerate agricultural activity in 2011.

Keywords: Biofuels, bioethanol, biodiesel, energy industry, methyl esters, agriculture, European Union, rapeseed.
