Propane power is clean-burning, reliable and efficient energy source that farmers can depend on.
Propane offers many environmental and economic advantages for agricultural producers.
Since propane is nontoxic and insoluble, it does not pose any threat to aquifers or groundwater supply. Additionally, since propane quickly vaporizes within a pressurized container and is released as a gas, it does not spill, pool, or leave a residue.
Propane can be used in hundreds of different agricultural applications, such as:
- Crop drying
- Barn and shop heating
- Poultry and pig brooding
- Weed and pest control
- Irrigation pumps
- Water heating
- Wind generators
- Forklift power
Propane is also the most portable fuel. Storage tanks can be placed around the main farm area or in the field, and tanks can be moved with the work site, allowing farmers to power equipment in even the remotest areas of a farm.
From the farmhouse to the poultry barn, propane can be used for space heating and greenhouse heating.
Propane water heaters can meet the hot water needs of agricultural operations efficiently and economically.
