Abstract The Ecodiesel project aims at a drastic improvement of the GHG emission of current biodiesel production in the EU. If the biodiesel is produced from crops, the way the crop is cultivated at the farm is very important because calculations have shown that the emission from crop cultivation have a large effect on the total chein performance. This reports aims at a description of the baseline of oilcrop cultivation, i.e. the existing practices in the EU27 and the associated economic and environmental performance, notably energy use and GHG emission.
