Green Car Congress
MARCH 11, 2013
has entered into an agreement with POET, LLC, one of the world’s largest ethanol producers, for the use of sorghum grown in South Dakota in the production of ethanol. Chromatin said the agreement covers up to 4,400 acres of sorghum grain that will be grown in South Dakota. Chromatin said South Dakota growers are attracted to sorghum as a grain source because it is easy to grow, has low fertilizer and water needs and is tolerant to both heat and drought conditions.
