Day on the Hill for Minnesota Corn and Soybean Growers Associations

Two of the biggest commodity groups in Minnesota recently completed visits to the capitol in St. Paul.

Minnesota Soybean Growers president Bob Worth says the association asked lawmakers to find ways of increasing the use of biodiesel.

“We’re at the 20 percent level now, but we see no reason whatsoever not to go to B100. Have that available for everybody and definitely have, like the Minnesota Department of Transportation, use B100.”

Minnesota Corn Growers Association president Dana Allen-Tully tells Brownfield members shared the sustainability story of corn with the governor, state agencies, and legislators.

“A lot of us are already doing soil health practices, or erosion control, or different tillage methods, conserving water. And we just want to make sure that the public understands that.”

Allen-Tully and Worth say the nitrate issue in southeast Minnesota was discussed and both associations are engaged with the agencies working on EPA’s request for further action.
