According to today's USDA Grain Transportation Report, on March 14, Scoular announced it will convert a sunflower crushing plant in Goodland, KS, into a dual oilseed crush plant for biofuel production.

The facility will crush both soybeans and canola, switching between them based on availability.

Expected to begin operations in fall 2024, the plant will process 11 million bushels of oilseeds a year.

If Scoular's processing goal is realized, then the company's biofuels production will, by itself, raise the demand for grain transportation.
