CORN GROWERS RALLY FOR ETHANOL

 CORN GROWERS RALLY FOR ETHANOL
 Ohio's corn growers will rally for ethanol's inclusion in federal


Clean Air Act regulations at 11 a.m. July 9 at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus. Several hundred farmers are expected to draw attention to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's threatened removal of ethanol as an approved fuel additive.
 The rally will be held on the High Street side of the statehouse. Farmers will bring bags filled with 4.5 pounds of corn, which represents the 20 cents per bushel added to corn prices by the current ethanol market in the United States.
 Participating in the rally will be Ohio Sen. John Glenn (D-New Concord), Ohio Corn Growers President Jim Mitchell, Gov. George Voinovich, Ohio Department of Agriculture Director Fred Dailey and Ohio Farm Bureau President C. Ray Noecker.
 Also participating will be Barbara Charnes, chairman of the Coloradans for Clean Air, and Mike Bryan of the National Corn Growers Association.
 A grain truck with 1,000 bushels of corn also will be displayed as will two trucks filled with products of the corn fermentation process. A tanker filled with 2,600 gallons of ethanol and a truck with 8.25 tons of high-protein animal feed will represent products obtained from 1,000 bushels of corn. Farmers will also distribute pamphlets and other information about ethanol to bystanders.
