Clean Fuels Alliance America in a campaign to raise awareness about Bioheat Fuel, an environmentally responsible and sustainable energy solution.

It’s an eco-friendly and sustainable home heating solution derived from plants, including soybeans.

Bioheat fuel is a renewable energy source that blends traditional heating oil with biodiesel, significantly reducing carbon emissions and environmental impact.

**Large-scale family farms accounted for a majority of the value of commodity production in 2022, according to the USDA’s Economic Research Service.

Specifically, these farms accounted for 51% of cash grains and soybeans, 56% of hog production, 65% of cotton and specialty crops, and 76% of dairy.

Small family farms accounted for 3% of the value of production for dairy, 4% for cotton, 7% for specialty crops, and 26% for beef.

**Undersecretary for Trade and Ag Affairs, Alexis Taylor will lead an agribusiness trade mission to India in April and USDA is reminding interested parties that applications are open for exporters who want to take part.

Following notable tariff reductions in September, Taylor says there is no larger untapped market in the world for U.S. agriculture than India and its 1.4 billion consumers.

While in India, U.S. agribusinesses will participate in business-to-business meetings with potential importers from India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.
