Podcast: Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) is a tremendous success

Since the EPA denied a request to waive the Renewable Fuels Standard today, it seems like the perfect time to share this podcast, which was recorded in October.

In the podcast, Carl Sousek, a farmer from Prague and president of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, explains how the RFS has been "a tremendous success" on several fronts, from increasing national energy security to boosting the U.S. economy.

"Over the past six years, corn growers have responded to an increased demand for corn," he said. "Greater corn demand led not only to increased acres of planted corn, but more profitable corn, which has led to better agronomic practices, better seed and increased yields. Without these enhancements, fueled by the RFS, the production of corn would have been much less."
