Schott, a farmer in Kulm, ND, serves as chairman of the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), which represents approximately 35,000 dues-paying corn growers and the interests of more than 300,000 farmers. The NCGA serves as a leading voice for ethanol on Capitol Hill and continues to educate consumers about the benefits of using ethanol, something Schott and the NCGA take great pride in. "Corn farmers and the American ethanol industry answered the call nearly 30 years ago to provide feedstock for a domestically produced renewable energy source,” he said. “Today, that same feedstock constitutes more than 10% of the nation’s fuel and continues to provide a bountiful supply of corn to our long-term customers."
