The article reports that the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) has entered a licensing agreement with Pioneer Hi-Bred International Inc., a E.I. duPont de Nemours & Co. subsidiary, that will allow NCGA to use Pioneer's high total fermentable near infrared rapid assay technology. NCGA President Leon Corzine said a single industry standard that measures the ethanol yield potential of corn grown from all types of seed is important to com growers. NCGA is in a position to help insure growers, ethanol producers and seed companies are all on the same page when it comes to quantifying the ethanol yield potential of corn.
