Ohio corn is used for more than food

Ohio corn is used for feed, fuel and other renewable products.

There are seven operational ethanol plants and 120 E-85 stations in Ohio

40% of Ohio’s corn goes towards ethanol production without reducing available stocks for food and animal feed. 33% of the corn used to produce ethanol returns to the market as animal feed (DDGs). 523 million gallons of ethanol was produced in Ohio in 2016.

Food and agriculture is Ohio’s top industry

1 in 7 Ohioans has an agriculture-related job and agriculture contributes $105 billion to Ohio’s economy annually.
