Ethanol producers are seen cutting output in August, holding out for lower corn prices as the new crop is harvested this fall, according to Brandon Marshall, analyst for Northstar Commodity in Minneapolis, Minn.

"Ethanol plants are at a point where they will shut down in August for routine maintenance because the cost for corn is at a fairly substantial level," Marshall said. He said profit margins dropped to 6 cents per gallon last week compared to 20 cents gallon a month ago.

"Profit margins should continue to improve, but today's report is on the negative side toward production," he added.
