The crop requires 1800-2000 sunlight hours annually, more than 300 cal/cm2 / per day, constant sunlight of atleast 5 hours per day for better oil palm yield. Moist, deep and well drained medium textured soils rich in humus content are considered ideal.
But even comparing flax per crop to palm oil per year, flax far exceeds plam and olive and all other oil staple crops in production of essential fatty acids per hectare. Flax is also by far the best oil staple crop for production of omega-3 fat per hectare.

Oil palm plantations were established in tropical America and west Africa about this time, and in 2003, palm oil production equaled that of soybean, which had been the number one oil crop for many years.
Oil crops for production of advanced biofuels Overview. Oil crops are the base for biodiesel production. In Europe, rapeseed is the most common feedstock for biodiesel production. In the US, Argentina and Brazil, soybean oil is the most dominant biodiesel fuel feedstock. In Indonesia and Malaysia, palm oil is the main feedstock cultivated.
Oilseed Crops for Biodiesel Production. Biodiesel can be produced from a wide variety of oilseed crops and animal fats. In Europe, rapeseed oil is the major biodiesel feedstock. In the United States, soybeans are the dominant biodiesel feedstock. Soybeans. Soybeans produce approximately 1.5 gallons of oil per bushel.
