We wish everyone a very blessed and happy Easter weekend. We’ll be taking time off for this solemn and joyful celebration starting on Good Friday.
Come visit ZimmComm at booth 402 in the 2013 Agri-Marketing Conference Connection Point. We’ll be announcing a fantastic booth giveaway drawing and of course there will be a new ZimmComm announcement at the show. Hope to see you there.
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “Do you support continuing the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS)?”
Our poll results: Fifty-seven percent say Yes, It’s Working, Twenty-nine percent say No, It’s Not Working, twelve percent ask What is the RFS?, and a small portion at two percent say Other. Over half of you support the continuation of the Renewable Fuel Standard. For those who ask what is the RFS? The Renewable Fuel Standard regulations were developed by EPA in collaboration with refiners, renewable fuel producers, and many other stakeholders. The RFS program requires 36 billion gallons of renewable-fuel to be blended into gasoline by 2022.
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “Has winter weather affected drought conditions in your area?”Drought conditions coupled with below average snowfall are resulting in low topsoil moisture. Do you think this will impact the 2013 growing season? Let us know.
