According to what has been published in their website, we should know if the proposal is of some interest for them around the end of February. IMO one of the biggest challenge is to make people fully aware of the importance ane potential of this approach.

I agree, the idea of supporting green activities (sustainable biofuel production) and in particular the development of interactive maps and GIS system to be used for no profit purposes seems very interesting for us (www.agroils.com). I hope we can stimulate the grant proposition doing some information to private/companies to enjoy the community. Today we are 500, I hope we can be 1,000 very soon.

I understand that it is a wonderful idea and fully support the intention, Google is a global institution in terms of geographical location and I think we as users Jatrophabook we have a duty to support these initiatives.
