Propane-Powered Irrigation Engines: Second Only to Rain
They may not be able to control the rain, but every year, producers choose the next best thing: a clean, efficient propane-powered irrigation engine. From 2008 to 2013, 25 percent more farmers added propane irrigation engines to their operations; that's more than 6,000 farms, irrigating 1.1 million acres.
Results from the 2014 Propane Farm Incentive Program will show you why. Farmers report propane-powered irrigation engines are more efficient, more reliable, cleaner, and cost-effective compared with diesel-powered engines.
