  • Enogen growers will receive rebates on grain bins and other equipment from Chief Agri/Industrial Division
  • Chief technology, coupled with the Ethanol Grain Quality Solution, will help provide ethanol plants with more high-quality grain
  • Rebates enable grower access to Chief grain bins and equipment to aid in fulfilling Enogen stewardship protocols

A growing demand for high ethanol-yielding grain is creating the potential for corn growers to increase their income per acre. Earlier this year, Syngenta introduced the Ethanol Grain Quality Solution (EGQS), an initiative that includes agronomic protocols and best practices specifically designed to contribute to higher yields, improved grain quality and more ethanol per bushel.

“Grain quality requires attention to detail,” said Roger Townsend, President of Chief Agri/Industrial Division. 


“The goal should be to minimise quality deterioration at each step of production and during postharvest. We look forward to working with Enogen growers to help them maximise grain quality and return on investment.”

Stiffened bins from Chief Agri/Industrial Division have long been used as an integral component of commercial grain-management systems. Now, they are available in sizes ideal for use on farms, offering all the features that have created the Chief reputation for superior strength, durability and ease of installation. Greater access to technology and expertise from Chief, a leader in grain-handling solutions, will enable Enogen growers to provide ethanol plants with more high-quality corn while helping to ensure the stewardship of Enogen grain.
       
“Corn is the single biggest input cost for an ethanol plant, and ethanol yield per bushel is one of the biggest drivers of plant profitability,” said Guy Hartwig, head of Enogen grain operations at Syngenta. 


“Increasingly, ethanol plants are seeking not just clean, dry corn with little or no damage and foreign material, but also grain with quality characteristics that can maximise ethanol production per bushel, including more accessible starch. Chief’s industry-leading grain-handling technology and best-in-class customer service will help Enogen growers maximise profitability, while helping to support the ethanol industry.”

Enogen growers are required to follow specific, yet simple stewardship guidelines to receive a 40-cents-per-bushel (on average) premium. These guidelines include planting non-Enogen border rows around an Enogen cornfield, cleaning out planters and combines, and dedicating bin space for all Enogen grain.
