Propane is a reliable, efficient energy source that allows farmers to continue working through environmental regulations. With propane, farmers have the power to responsibly run operations in and out of the field. Whether it’s used in irrigation engines, grain dryers, standby generators, pickup trucks, or a variety of other applications, propane has the ability to efficiently fuel a wide variety of farm equipment.
Farmers, like other businesses, are constantly striving to improve efficiencies and reduce costs. Propane offers several solutions that can help do just that. Today’s propane-powered irrigation engines are comparable in operation costs to electric motors — and considerably less to purchase than diesel irrigation engines. They can also significantly reduce fuel costs.
Propane-powered irrigation systems produce 11 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than diesel systems and 24 percent fewer than gasoline systems. Compared with other fuels, propane is a cleaner, more efficient way to fuel farms
Put the power of propane to work on your farm and end your dependence on the grid. Whether you’re thinking of placing another irrigation engine, heating a building, or adding a grain dryer, propane’s flexibility makes the decision easy. There’s no need to locate on a natural gas line, run a new electric line, or deal with other fuel suppliers: the propane will come to you.
Propane is made in America, primarily from domestic natural gas, and we have plenty of it; in fact, the United States is a net exporter of propane, producing more than we actually use.
