New Farming Techniques and Seed Technologies Boost Ethanol Yeilds
As alcohol-based fuels manufacturing matures, newer more efficient farming methods geared specifically toward renewable energy sources will increase the amount of fuel-per-acre produced.
One slide from a recent energy independance conference projected a 428%+ increase in corn crop yield per acre for corn-based ethanol per acre possible withinÂ the next 20Â years asÂ new seed types, farming methods, and distilling technology are developed.
â€œWe know yield is what matters,â€ said Tracy Mader, marketing manager for Agrisure Corn Traits. â€œWeâ€™ve taken great care in leveraging the science of trait integration technology with the art of plant breeding to produce hybrids built for yield. Knowing that Syngenta scientists have set rigorous standards and work with only elite genetics, growers can have complete confidence in their crop yields.â€
