Farm Progress ShowAs the 2007 Farm Progess Show gets underway this in Decatur biofuels will be taking center stage.

“Everybody’s beginning to kind of see some reward for the biofuel talk,” said show manager Matt Jungmann. “When the economy’s like this is when the companies step up and bring out the new technologies.”

The show has 475 exhibitors this year and some 100,000 people, mostly farmers, are expected to attend the three day event which runs Tuesday through Thursday. Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns will also be in attendance on Wednesday to discuss farm legislation and trade negotiations.

Chuck Zimmerman is attending the Farm Progress Show this year, thanks to the sponsorship of New Holland, so expect to see some biofuel-related posts from him in the coming days, or check out his full coverage of the event on
