Corn or Sugercane? You choose

By Vinny

There are two different plants that are used to produce ethanol, and each has its own attributes. Corn, produces more ethanol per plant than sugercane. However, sugercane has more plant per square yard. They both get about the same amount of ethanol produced if they had identical fields. Which one do you think is better?

Sugarcane (sugercane) is spelled wrong.
