U.S. looks to bio-based products to help farmers

Bio-based fuels and products will undoubtedly shape the future of American agriculture, but for the young market to enter the mainstream will require significant promotion and funding efforts, industry leaders said on Friday.

Within the agriculture industry, converting corn, soybeans and other bio-based goods into products that reduce consumption of natural resources and lessen emissions of greenhouse gases is slowly gaining steam.

But a panel of new age bio-product and environmental market experts at the U.S. Department of Agriculture's annual outlook conference near Washington admit that what becomes of the futuristic industry is largely uncertain.

"We are simply at the beginning of a new era that could be extremely important to American agriculture," said Marvin Duncan, an economist at the USDA.

The evolution of bio-based products and fuels "is like being at the front end of when America learned to fly. But like all major developments, it comes slowly and has many participants," he said.
