USDA Raises Corn Use for Ethanol

Cindy Zimmerman

USDA’s latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimate released this morning shows an increase in corn use for ethanol.

USDA WAOBU.S. corn ending stocks are unchanged this month as a projected increase in corn use for ethanol is offset by a reduction in expected feed and residual use. Corn used to produce ethanol is raised 50 million bushels as strong blender incentives and positive ethanol producer margins continue to encourage expansion in ethanol production and use. Rising gasoline prices have pulled ethanol prices higher helping to offset increases in corn feedstock costs for ethanol producers.
