Farmers ask New EPA Director to Uphold Administration’s Ethanol Promises
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Tariffs and excess supplies are taking a toll on Iowa farmers. Current soybean prices are more than one-dollar below the price farmers need just to break even. Many farmers hope their corn crop can make up for soybeans and expanded ethanol use could help their bottom line. Farmers just need the EPA to sign off on the change allowing the sale of E-15 blended fuel year-round.
