Description

With the expansion of the ethanol industry in Iowa in 2005 the Iowa Grain Quality Initiative saw the need to evaluate quality management practices and grain storage practices impacting grain movement to the ethanol industry. This presentation describes the response of the Iowa Grain Quality Initiative to the rapid expansion of Iowa's ethanol industry As more corn is used locally in ethanol fuel production, less is available for export, feed applications and other processing. This has led to changes in grain transport, on-farm grain storage and the function of local grain elevators.
