The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) launched a microsite to highlight propane’s benefits and versatility on farms.

The website,, shares information about new farm equipment powered by propane, including video testimonials, case studies and photos. According to PERC, it features information on propane technology and new equipment available, including irrigation engines, grain dryers, building heat, power generators, forklifts, home appliances, vehicles, mowers and flame weeding systems.

PERC has also teamed with several equipment manufacturers to revamp traditional propane technology in the agricultural market, and the council offers its Propane Farm Incentive Program to help agricultural producers save on purchasing new, propane-powered equipment.

“Propane use on the farm has continued to grow more prevalent in recent years,” says Cinch Munson, director of agriculture business development at PERC. “There are still some ag producers who don’t know about all the new technologies built to use propane. This microsite shows consumers the many benefits of next-generation propane equipment and how it differs from propane equipment of the past. These benefits – combined with the fuel’s reduced costs and emissions and increased efficiency – are why many producers now consider propane the ‘farm fuel of the future.’”
