Podcast: Now is not the time to grant a waiver to the RFS

In this podcast, Curtis Rohrich, a farmer from Wood River and member of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, talks about how the drought is impacting every facet of agriculture, and a lot of sectors beyond just farmers' fields, pastures and barns.

While USDA  has lowered national corn yield estimates, he said, it will be fall or early winter before we know the true size of this year’s crop.

He then discusses the Renewable Fuels Standard, or RFS, and notes that while corn growers support the waiver process, now does not seem like the right time to grant a waiver, for a couple of key reasons.
