Nationwide, over 13 billion gallons of ethanol are utilized each year. The clean burning fuel is distilled using corn grown in Missouri and across the Midwest.

“Missouri Corn is proud to partner with a progressive organization like Crappie Masters to help showcase ethanol’s performance power on the water,” said Kevin Hurst, incoming MCGA president and farmer from Tarkio, Mo. “These guys are serious about fishing and serious about their boats. They need a fuel they can trust and that is gas blended with 10 percent of renewable, cleaner burning, Missouri-made ethanol.”
