ATMORE, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Bob Riley plans to take a walking tour

of a sugar cane test site in Atmore to learn about how the plants

can be turned into an alternative fuel source.

Amyris Bio technologies Chief Executive John Melo will also be on

the tour Tuesday.

Four types of sugar cane were recently planted on a 100 acre

site near the Holman Correctional Facility.

Amryris Bio technologies will build a biofuel demonstration plant

in south Alabama using the cane as feed stock if the plant can be

grown in Alabama.
