    diesel by mid 2007 and 9 million in emergency loans to build four seed crushing plants in eastern Washington Whitman County commissioners are getting behind biodiesel as well They recently approved 5 000 toward the purchase of a demonstration size crusher similar to MaryJanesFarm s Five farmers will eventually tow the crusher around the county in a show and tell to promote the switch from wheat to oilseed for homegrown fuel says Commissioner Les Wigen It s got to get off the ground he says from the Hyde Out in Colfax a dimly lit den for local aggies This is something that can change eastern Washington and rural America But many farmers are concerned that local crushers and refineries will have to rely on imported Canadian seed and Midwestern soybean oil for their stocks If our farmers can produce the seed that s the way to go Wigen says After years of government subsidy the Midwestern ethanol industry is highly developed and is in a positive economic balance Not many think Washington can compete with the biofuel industry in the corn belt But some think canola rape and mustard seed can be the cash crop local farmers have never had The Northwest is different from the Midwest says Endicott area farmer Read Smith We export 80 to 90 percent of what we produce That s come back to bite us Smith was an early proponent of environmentally friendly direct seed no till agriculture He and his son Jeremy own 8 000 acres between St John and Endicott Half of that is in wheat and he d like to turn a quarter of that into oilseed Endicott area farmer Read Smith and one of his son Jeremy s many farm cats sit atop a 1945 International Harvester TD9 tractor that runs on biodiesel Smith wants Washington lawmakers to get behind new initiatives that could make growing oilseeds more profitable for both farmers and the environment Exporting wheat peas lentils barley and other traditional crops has left farmers at the mercy of the commodities markets Smith says But he thinks if growers can be persuaded to rotate oilseed stocks into their planting regimen a microeconomy that can set its own prices would emerge We are creating the chicken and the egg he says That would also require that farmers invest in the infrastructure much like Midwestern farmers do he adds But whoever owns the refineries needs to provide incentives to get local farmers to grow oilseed he says If they want nonimported feed stocks they need to set their price at a level that guarantees local production Another key will be creating viable markets for byproducts like seed meal and glycerin Farmers would benefit from those sales only if they own a piece of the factory University of Idaho scientists say the meal can be used as livestock feed and a natural herbicide and that glycerin can be sold to the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries Smith favors Gregoire s 2 percent mandate
