ICGA PRESIDENT ADDRESSES BIOFUELS AND CARBON WITH EPA ADMINISTRATOR REGAN AND USDA SEC'Y VILSACK
Source: Iowa Corn Growers Assn news release

Johnston, IA - Today, Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) President Carl Jardon represented corn farmers at an in-person, on-farm meeting with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan and U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack. The following is a statement from Jardon.

"ICGA thanks EPA Administrator Regan and Secretary Vilsack for prioritizing this Iowa farm visit and providing the opportunity to speak about advancements in farming practices that are driving lower carbon biofuels. Carbon sequestration is a top federal policy priority for ICGA members as incentivizing farmers' voluntary improvements in ag production practices and opportunities to credit soil carbon sequestration will continue to lower the carbon footprint of biofuels.

"Biofuels like ethanol are an immediate, effective, and affordable pathway for agriculture and rural America to help combat climate change. ICGA looks forward to working with the Biden Administration and appreciates Administrator Regan's and Secretary Vilsack's continued support and leadership on multiple topics as Iowa corn farmers seek to expand ethanol's share of the fuel tank and accelerate carbon reduction in the transportation and agriculture sectors today."
