Biofuels Info From John Deere

Cindy Zimmerman

Deere John Deere is now featuring biofuels information for agricultural producers on its web site.

The information includes a detailed biofuels reference report and 6.5-minute video that overviews John Deere’s position on the use of biodiesel.

“John Deere has been an early advocate for biodiesel and continues to actively support its use,” says Don Borgman, director of agricultural industry relations for John Deere. “We believe that supporting the use of 2 percent biodiesel (B2) is a logical first step for the industry until challenges with production, quality and distribution are addressed.

John Deere was the first to approve B5 blends for general use in 2001 and initiated its factory fill program for self-propelled equipment in 2005.
