Abstract: U.S. ethanol production is expanding at a phenomenal pace, doubling between 2001 and likely to double again in the next few years. While some corn needed to meet higher ethanol demand could come from increased production, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that much of the additional corn needed for ethanol production will be diverted from exports. Despite this fact, there has been little focus on or discussion of the impact of corn-based U.S. corn exports. But these impacts could be significant, and ethanolÆs potential impact exports should cause policymakers to reconsider their long-standing focus on exports.
