Study: More biofuel corn would hurt water

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind., Sept. 29 (UPI) — U.S. scientists say they have determined growing more corn to produce biofuels would contaminate water sources.

Purdue University researchers said their study of Indiana water sources found those near fields that practice continuous-corn rotations had higher levels of nitrogen, fungicides and phosphorous than corn-soybean rotations.
