Soybean growers welcome higher biodiesel blend

Email

Spring was wet and difficult, and many of Bill and Karolyn Zurn’s late-planted soybeans are still small and scant in the soggy soil.

The Callaway farm couple won’t harvest a good crop this fall unless the rest of the growing season cooperates.

But even if their crop doesn’t turn out well, the Zurns have reason to remember 2014 fondly. A new state biodiesel mandate, which the Zurns and other soybean growers pushed hard to win, will boost demand for soybean oil by 50 percent.
