Minnesota Corn Growers had a busy year with policy changes and weather challenges. Minnesota Corn Growers past president Tim Waibel (W-able) says they have more on the agenda for 2022. “We had our sights set on getting E-15 getting passed in Minnesota. We had a lot of hurdles to jump through including leadership changes, which certainly didn’t help us in some respects. This is something that we’re going to highlight again in the 2022 session coming up. When we look at our members individually, I think every singles corn grower faced challenges with the growing season we had. A lot of us farmers we’re affected by the drought”. Waibel says they’ve been working specifically on allowing E-15 year-round to benefit the biofuel industry. “We’ve done a lot of work to try and educate folks on both sides of the aisle as to the benefits of ethanol, so that’s going to be our main priority”.
