In Illinois, Illinois Farm Families® has released the first episode in their new docuseries highlighting farmer sustainability practices. This engaging storytelling video is focused on biofuels made from Illinois corn and soybeans. It presents the perspectives of farmer Elliott Uphoff and American Lung Association Vice President Angela Tin to help explain the clean air advantages of Illinois-grown biofuels.
Illinois farmers, including Uphoff, use science, farm data and technology to continually improve how they grow crops for food, fuel and other uses. This video makes a strong case for the future of Illinois biofuels and can be viewed at watchusgrow.org/innovation-grows-here.
Additional episodes for the series are being created and will focus on other sustainability topics, including bioplastics, carbon sequestration and pollinator habitats. IFF will promote the videos through social media, including Facebook and YouTube, targeting a wide audience that includes Chicagoland millennial parents.
