Ethanol Who's Who: Ethanol Producers in Iowa Help Harvest 'Fields of Opportunities'.

ENERGY RESOURCE-11 October 2006-Ethanol Who's Who: Ethanol Producers in Iowa Help Harvest 'Fields of Opportunities'(C)2006 JeraOne -

We're guessing that John Wayne would be proud to know that his birthplace -- Iowa -- is leading the charge to lessen America's reliance on foreign oil as the nation's No. 1 producer of ethanol.

First in corn production, first in soybean production, first in grain production, Iowa and ethanol are obviously a good mix, which may be why the 29th state adopted a new slogan in 1999: "Fields of Opportunities."

According to the Iowa Corn Growers Association, more than 425 million bushels of Iowa corn are processed annually into ethanol, and as of June 2006, 77.6% of all gasoline sold in Iowa was an ethanol blend, with more than 107 million gallons of ethanol-blended fuels sold during the month.

The Iowa Corn Growers Association also lists the following producers as helping drive the state's ethanol-rich "fields of opportunity":
