With less than 48 hours remaining, I call on all farmers to submit comments to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the proposed Renewable Volume Obligations (RVO) for the 2018.

These reductions equate to a 73-million-gallon reduction for cellulosic and a 40-million-gallon reduction for total renewable fuel when compared to 2017.
