The article focuses on the condition of the biofuel plants production in Southeastern region in the U.S. It reveals that the ethanol plant in Georgia and the barley-based ethanol plant in Virginia have presented small production capabilities, which are viewed to affect the grain production. It also cites the possible effect of the shortage of soybeans on biodiesel industry.
