I don´t know where Mr. Joachim von Braun went here in Brazil, but, as far as I know, we produce ethanol from sugar cane, and not from corn. Our ethanol in Brazil (from sugar cane) is really a problem because you can not trust the farmers. When the sugar price is high, they reduce ethanol production and prices rise. Consequently, this fuel price is not competitive with gasoline price. Now we have the so-called "flex" cars. They run on gasoline OR ethanol. The driver chooses which one is the best bet.
Did the planted area for sugar diminish due to ethanol production? I do not have this data, but as far as I know, no, it doesn´t.
