For corn growers, ethanol means markets as usual. In other words, up and down.
That was the word from the senior agricultural economist for Wells Fargo Michael Swanson, who spoke at the Farm News Ag Show at Iowa Central Community College, according to this story by Bill Shea from the Ft. Dodge Messenger.
The economist said he’s ‘‘bullish’’ about the future of ethanol. But in nearly the same breath he cautioned that ethanol production will be a ‘‘real roller coaster.’’
Sounds like what farmers are used to already.
