The Economic and Environmental Impacts of an Ethanol Industry on Western New York

This paper examines the economic, environmental and energy use impacts of a corn based ethanol industry on Western New York state. A regional linear programming model is used. Five representative farm groups are used to describe the agricultural sector of the study region. Comparisons are made between a benchmark solution and model formulations that include conservation tillage practices, ethanol induced feed price changes, and the feeding of the feed by-product, DDG.
