A group of major players in the agribusiness sector have joined together to highlight the ability of American agriculture to meet both food and energy needs.
The Alliance for Abundant Food and Energy includes Archer Daniels Midland, DuPont, John Deere, Monsanto, and the Renewable Fuels Association.
The alliance asserts that “By growing more crops and developing more efficient ways of processing them, we can produce enough food to meet the world’s needs. The Alliance for Abundant Food and Energy understands that innovations in Agriculture can support the development of greater productivity, enabling farmers to effectively supply both the world’s growing food and energy demands.”
The companies involved have contributed towards a fund that will be used for national advertising and lobbying efforts on Capitol Hill.
