Our new ZimmPoll is live and asks the question, Is the Trump-Pence Republican ticket good for agriculture and biofuels? During his campaigning Trump has been a vocal supporter of biofuels visiting an ethanol plant in Iowa last summer and has repeatedly said he could “be a farmer“. However, one-term Indiana Governor Mike Pence is being heralded by the ag industry as understanding and supporting many facets of agriculture from small farms to large agribusinesses.
