Enogen corn seen doubling acreage in 2014 to 120,000 acres

In the Midwest, Syngenta’s Enogen corn variety that has the alpha amylase enzyme needed for ethanol production genetically inserted into the grain was planted on 65,000 acres this year in Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota. As much as 120,000 acres are expected for planting next year. Three ethanol plants are already signed up to use Enogen, with Quad County in Iowa already using it and Plymouth Energy in Iowa as well as Bonanza BioEnergy in Kansas set to start using it beginning with this harvest.
