US needs more grain-based fuel production - Veneman

Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman said on Thursday the U.S. farm industry needs to increase efforts to develop alternative fuels like grain-based ethanol and bio-diesel as the United States searches for new sources of energy.

"The nation needs new sources of clean, dependable energy and agriculture needs new markets -- a coincidence of needs upon which we should capitalize," Veneman said in her first public address at the USDA's annual Agricultural Outlook Forum.

She did not elaborate.

President George W. Bush has repeatedly stated that the country needs to increase its domestic energy supplies and become less dependent on crude oil imports.

A White House task force led by Vice President Dick Cheney is preparing a broad national plan to boost domestic energy supplies, including allowing oil and gas companies access to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. Cheney is a former top executive of oilfield services giant Halliburton Co. .
