MORRIS - Scientists in Morris may be helping the United States military increase their use of biofuels thanks to a research grant from the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Energy.

The $7 million grant - which is spread among a number of United States Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service offices, university, and industry partners over the next four years - will be used to research ways to make biofuels a more economically viable option for the U.S. military.
