Agriculture, Ethanol and Presidential Politics


    The presidential election is still 10 months away; however, the countdown to the February 1, 2016 Iowa Caucus is on. Iowa’s early position in the Presidential primary season has both the agriculture and renewable fuels industries paying close attention when it comes to the candidate’s stance on Renewable Fuel Standards (RFS) and Ag and Energy Subsidies.

    Historically, when in Iowa, most candidates have espoused their unequivocal support for agriculture (after all, Iowa’s #1 sector is Agriculture & Food Production with #2 being Renewable Energy). This year’s campaign season has already been surprising in several ways. Market Edge has compiled the following review of the candidates and their positions on agriculture issues.
