Representatives of more than 70 organizations and businesses announce their support for the 25x'25 renewable energy vision at the second annual National Ag and Forestry Renewable Energy Summit.

"The time is right to embrace a bold energy vision and chart a new course, securing a better future for our children and grandchildren."
A few of the organizations endorsing the program include: the American Farm Bureau Federation, American Agri-Women, the American Soybean Assn, CropLife America, Deere & Co., Environmental Defense, Independent Community Bankers of America, National Assn of State Departments of Agriculture, National Assn of Wheat Growers, National Corn Growers Assn, National Sorghum Producers, and the Natural Resources Defense Council.
