The Effect of Ethanol Production on Agricultural Production in the State of Alabama


  • Kebede, Ellene
  • Duffy, Patricia A.
  • Zabawa, Robert


This research assessed the economic effect of corn-based fuel ethanol production on agriculture and the state economy in Alabama. The results showed that in the short run a 15 million gallon per year plant will be profitable. This will have farm income and a multiplier affect in the rest of the state economy.
