To meet the requirement of EU Directive 2009/28/EK regarding renewable energy sources, the agricultural industry has become an important supplier of resources for biofuel producers. Since the emergence of the biofuel industry, its output has significantly increased. It develops dynamically in the entire world. In Latvia, problems are observed in achieving the target set by the Directive. The presentresearch is based on analysis of theoretical literatures and statistical data; it is carried out in 2011, applying the following research methods: analysis, synthesis, the logical and constructive method, and the monographic method. The possible obstacles in selling biofuels of agricultural origin in the Latvian market were analysed.
