Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is pleased with the Environmental Protection Agency's decision to approve certain pathways for grain sorghum as a qualified feedstock under the Renewable Fuel Standard. "This pathway will open the door for Kansas sorghum farmers and Kansas ethanol plants to help meet both the conventional biofuel and advanced biofuel mandates under the RFS," Brownback said. Kansas is the nation's biggest producer of grain sorghum, and about 60% of the ethanol made in the state comes from the grain, he added.
