Description

The 2014 US corn crop is going to create problems for corn growers. Corn prices are falling below the cost of production and prospects for demand to grow responding to low prices face structural obstacles. The US corn carryover could easily grow to 2.2 billion bushels or more from this crop season. This challenge starts with the Ag sector. Farmers need to step up and take the challenge. Here is "The Ethanol Challenge - Plan E". While filling your vehicle at a blenders pump, video record a challenge to 5 other people to increase their use of ethanol by filling up with higher ethanol blended fuels to "tear down this blend wall!" Ask them to video record themselves tanking up at a blender's pump and to spread the message through the social media. My Ethanol Plan - E Challenge goes out to Bryce Anderson, DTN Climatologist --- Chip Flory, the face and voice of Pro-Farmer --- Carl Casale, President and CEO of CHS --- Bob Stallman, Texas Cattleman and President of the AFB --- Joni Ernst and Bruce Braley, candidates for the US Senate in Iowa. They all head or are part of organizations that can help facilitate awareness and change.
