In the agriculture industry, the value of propane isn’t limited to the field. It influences all aspects of farming operations. 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.
For farmers who haven’t looked at propane-powered irrigation engines lately, now is the time. Manufacturers are using the latest technology to produce propane-powered engines that are more efficient, reliable, and durable. And, when compared with diesel or gasoline engines, these new engines produce fewer emissions and cost up to 20 percent less to purchase and operate. The new propane-powered engines are more efficient than older propane models and can provide farmers with an immediate savings in fuel costs compared with diesel or gasoline. Plus, propane-powered irrigation engines are better for the environment and are already compliant with the EPA’s Tier 4 emissions regulations.
