A tractor sits in a field of milo near Fairbury, Neb., on Nov. 13. Pheasant hunting has long been a pastime in the region and once drew hundreds of weekend hunters eager to bag their limit. But the native grasslands and milo crops that used to dot surrounding Jefferson County have been overtaken by corn and soy crops. Neither provides the shelter that wildlife once enjoyed.

An ethanol plant sits next to a cornfield near Coon Rapids, Iowa, on July 20. Government mandates to increase ethanol production have helped drive up corn prices leading to marginal land being farmed to produce the crop. In 2012, 44 percent of the nation's corn crop was used for fuel, about twice the rate seen in 2006, according to the Department of Agriculture. (AP Photo/Charlie Riedel)
