No they can't. It all goes on the same market, #2 feed corn. And the farmers only grow corn and soybeans because they don't have any other choice anymore. They have literally been enslaved by Cargill and Monsanto.
So it happens it that level then.
It's still a fixed amount of corn available because the government subsidizes the industry.
Its not fixed tho. Its a strange cycle that when corn gets cheaper on the open market, farmers have to grow more to break even. It the last 10-15 years, our corn output has doubled.
Corn is pretty efficient to grow. Its one of the reasons why its our main crop. The entire Midwest couldn't keep the city of Los Angeles afloat in biofuel, according to the book Collapse. Won't work my friend.
Yeah, but we already just huck that into the moon.
