Michigans corn producers have approved a referendum to continue the Corn Marketing Program of Michigan.
Established in March 1993, the Corn Marketing Program of Michigan was developed to increase the utilization of Michigan corn through market development, education, and research.
The Corn Marketing Program of Michigan
(CMPM) recently announced that E85, a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent standard gasoline, was sold earlier this month for $1.85 per gallon at two Citgo fueling locations near Detroit, MI in celebration of the availability of the alternative fuel at the stations.
Funding for this project came from the Michigan Agricultural Experiment Station, Corn Marketing Program of Michigan
, Michigan Soybean Promotion Committee and Michigan Department of Agriculture.
Michigan corn producers will have an opportunity to vote on whether to continue the Corn Marketing Program of Michigan
in a referendum conducted by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) beginning Monday, January 29, 2018, through Friday, February 9, 2018.
Additionally, RFA said Stoel Rives, LLP of Portland, OR has become a new associate member, while the Corn Marketing Program of Michigan
of DeWitt, MI and the Distillers Grains Technology Council of Louisville, KY have both become new supporting members.
