Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue fielded many questions during a roundtable discussion at the Farm Progress Show on Wednesday. A common topic of discussion was small refinery waivers, the biodiesel tax credit and the Renewable Fuel Standard. “Let’s think about how we grow demand. That’s infrastructure,” said Perdue. “One idea suggested (to President Trump) is taking off all of the skull and cross bones on the E15 folks.” Farmers also asked Perdue about the next steps in trade discussions between the U.S. and China and the Japan agreement in principle. Perdue said more details will be released on the Japan agreement soon.
