Could Russia become a biofuel superpower?

This is a bit of a long shot but reading this report in the UK's Daily Telegraph about Russia using big a good harvest as a foreign policy tool, got me thinking about the possibility of it becoming a biofuel superpower.
Experts believe that Russia has huge potential for growth - millions of acres of farmland lie fallow and vast expanses of fertile land have never been farmed at all.
There would be hurdles to overcome, notably around the concepts of title and separations between the judicial, executive and legislative branches of government, but it might be a country that could develop a crop-based biofuels industry.
