ScalA-BF is a tool for the evaluation of the likelihood of the successful adoption of a biofuel crop production system in specific local settings (a village or a community). The tool is designed for an evaluation prior to the start of the promotion of biofuel crop production. ScalA-BF therefore is an ex-ante assessment tool. The basic idea of ScalA-BF is a comparison of specific requirements of a biofuel crop production system and the specific conditions that are relevant for the production of this biofuel crop in a specific locality.
