Corn growers and the ethanol industry aren’t giving up yet on getting EPA to offset demand lost to oil refiner RFS waivers, even after the agency dropped a plan to do just that, reports Hoosier Ag Today.

National Corn Growers’ Kathy Bergren predicts farmers will weigh in heavily on the pending 2019 RFS rule.

Boxing ethanol in at 10%, Bergren complains, kills incentive to use more or produce higher blends in gasoline and adding to existing demand losses.

EPA is expected to finalize the '19 RFS in November, leaving open the question of timing and whether the EPA will make a final decision ahead of the midterm elections.
