Corn+Soybean Digest



I have many friends who do not understand the biofuels issue. The information they get comes from the news media and talk radio or TV personalities. When we travel, we run into people with the same misinformation from the same sources. Example: Last night some commentator on TV said it takes 1.29 gal. of gas to make 1 gal. of corn ethanol.

My point is I always have access to my current issue of Corn & Soybean Digest. It travels with me. Would it be possible to have a fact sheet in each issue or at least an article every six months that outlines the basic correct and current facts about ethanol and biodiesel production?
