Approximately 18% of the terrestrial surface is semi-arid and does not support crop production. It may be possible to utilize this type of land for biofuel production by using plant species with high efficiencies of water use and drought resistance. For example, Agave spp. utilize a type of photosynthesis called Crassulacean acid...
