Corn for ethanol use drops in February

The USDA says corn for ethanol use during February 2021 was 332.794 million bushels. That was down 20% from January and 23% below February 2020 because of lower ethanol blending demand due to COVID-19 and some plants either limiting production or closing during Winter Storm Uri.

Production of distillers dried grains with solubles was 1.406 million tons, also down 20% on the month and 23% on the year.

The USDA’s next corn for ethanol use estimate is out April 9th.
