ISU-led group awarded $25 million grant for land use, biofuel production study

AMES, Iowa – Perhaps the three largest issues to face agriculture in this century are the food-versus-fuel debate in biofuel production, water and nutrient runoff, and soil erosion. Now, an Iowa State University-based study over the next five years will examine whether a single, coordinated production system can address all of these concerns while making … Continue reading ISU-led group awarded $25 million grant for land use, biofuel production study
