The article presents information on the benefits of biofuel production for farmers in Great Britain. The main reasons for the need for biofuels in Great Britain are climate change and energy security. The National Farmers Union (NFU) estimates that Great Britain has sufficient capacity to meet the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation target for 2010. The NFU is lobbying to ensure that farmers benefit from a wide range of opportunities in renewable energy.
