Time for new industrial crop

If Soth America keeps increasing acres of beans that market the bean market might never be good again.With the ethanol market we get alot of built in domestic demand.We need to find more uses for beans or more crops to grow that could be turned into other products.When beans were cheap ther were a few people doing research into turning them into plastics or fuel, 


Maybe someone can find a use for waterhemp or palmer amaranth,it it grows like they say maybe it can be baled and used to replace coal
