Corn supply chains in the United States

Researchers report a transportation model that tracks the distribution of corn from the county of production in the United States to primary processing of corn-fed animals and ethanol products; the study estimates the environmental impacts of corn production in all contiguous US counties and for various corn supply networks, and finds that the environmental impacts of corn production differ across industry and firm-level supply chains.
