Corn farming and corn production isn't what it used to be. Our industry is using leading edge technologies to increase our yield and efficiency. Please visit the links below for videos, documents and much more to aid in your curriculum.

Corn Facts

Corn Use
  • 5.2 billion bushels (bb) for livestock feed and residual use. Includes 1 bb in distillers grains from ethanol production.
  • 3.5 bb go directly into the production of 13.5 billion gallons of ethanol.
  • 1.4 bb become sweeteners, starch and food products.
  • 1.3 bb of corn will be exported, mostly for feed.
  • 733 million bushels will be carried over as surplus.

Ethanol Facts

Energy Security

  • The U.S. imports 45% of its petroleum needs today. This number is down significantly since the rise of the ethanol industry.
  • In 2011, thanks in part to ethanol, the U.S. needed to import 485 million fewer barrels of oil, the equivalent of 13% of total oil imports.
  • The value of the crude oil displaced by ethanol amounted to $49.7 billion in 2011.

  More Ethanol Facts
Myth #1 - Creating ethanol uses more energy than it produces.
FACT: For every unit of energy input, ethanol produces 2.3 units of output. 1 Gasoline output is actually LESS than one unit of output per unit of input, making ethanol three times more energy efficient than gasoline! In other words, it takes three times more energy to make a gallon of gasoline than it does to make a gallon of ethanol.

Through the use of technology and innovation the production of both corn and ethanol continues to become more and more efficient. Outdated information is often misused and can result in making it difficult to distinguish FACT from FICTION.
