Ethanol fuels happy news for corn demand

December 2015
Nebraska Farmer;Dec2015, Vol. 157 Issue 12, p105
This article mentions with ethanol prices defying the gravity despite low gasoline prices selling at 20 percent premium, biofuel ethanol is now responsible for nearly 4 of every 10 bushels of corn, a good news for growers but with exports down, lower ethanol prices will add to margin pressure.
