According to the National Corn Growers Association, U.S. corn producers are providing enough corn to meet the demands of the ethanol industry, as well as other markets.
National Corn Growers Association Vice President of Public Policy Jon Doggett delivered this message in Washington, D.C. last week at “Biofuels and the Future of U.S. Energy,” hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Other speakers at the event included U.S. Energy Secretary Sam Bodman and a number of government, industry and academic representatives.
Doggett participated on a panel where he presented the association’s 15 x 15 x 15 vision that calls for corn growers producing 15 billion bushels of corn to produce 15 billion gallons of ethanol by 2015.
“Through increasing corn yields, improved seed technology and overall improved ethanol plant production efficiency–among other things–this vision is very conceivable,” he said.
