The Georgia Agricultural Commodity Commission for Corn in association with the Georgia Cooperative Development Center contracted the Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development (CAED) to do a feasibility study on the production of Ethanol in Central Georgia. This study was to follow up a study that had been done two years previously, and was to expand the knowledge base of the feasibility of ethanol production in Georgia. The concern of the corn growers in Georgia was that given the price of feedstock corn is typically higher in Georgia than in the Midwest, a Georgia-based ethanol plant will operate at a competitive disadvantage to Midwest based ethanol plants.
