Economists with the University of Missouri Food and Agricultural Food and Policy Research Institute used computer models of the U.S. farm economy to predict the effects on corn production and corn prices if the 45-cent per gallon tax credit for biofuel blenders and associated 54-cent per gallon tariff on ethanol imports are extended in 2012. The report forecasted an increase of 1.7 million acres being used for corn production and a price increase of 18 cents per bushel for corn. To see the report in full visit the FAPRI website:
