AN ENERGY STRATEGY BASED ON ENERGY DEDICATED CROPS OR CORN: DIFFERENTIAL ECONOMIC AND REGIONAL IMPACTS

Daniel De La Torre Ugarte ()

No 35165, 2003 Annual Meeting, February 1-5, 2003, Mobile, Alabama from Southern Agricultural Economics Association

Abstract: The growth of the role of agriculture as a source of energy feedstock has been primarily concentrated on increasing corn use for ethanol. Alternatively, refocusing this growth in the utilization of dedicated energy crops could prove more advantageous as producers of more crops in a wider geographic area could benefit.
