It is expected the new processing plant will increase local production of the crops. About 400,000 acres need to be harvested to keep it operating at full capacity. It can also process safflower but that won’t happen until the EPA approves it as a feedstock for biodiesel. The company plans to partners with Utah State University to boost local soy yields.
