Why is corn so good for biofuels?

    Corn actually isn’t that good for biofuels, it has a relatively high energy input to output ratio for fuel applications – and using it as a biofuel causes rising food prices do to end product competition. Further more corn uses a great deal of water compared to other potential biofuel crops. These issues are being addresses, and corn’s viability has actually increased over the last few years, but there are still better options.

    This question is actually up for some debate and I’ve included to contrasting sources so you might be able to get a broad perspective and decide for yourself.
