Alabama creates alternative fuel center

Alabama officials have been getting so many calls about ethanol and biodiesel that the state agriculture department has set up the Center for Alternative Fuels. Commissioner Ron Sparks says alternative fuel will be a big opportunity for the agriculture community, expanding its role from food and fiber to fuel. The idea is a "one-stop shop" for farmers to collect information on the practice and business of raising crops for biofuel use. Some see the state making a comeback in the soybean business. As expected, price will determine the effort.
