From now through Dec. 31, affected producers who apply for the Propane Farm Incentive Program can earn double the incentive amount for qualifying propane-powered equipment – including irrigation engines, building and water heating systems, power generators and flame weeding systems.

“We recognize the devastating impact that tornadoes can have on a farmer’s business and bottom line, especially as much of the Midwest is preparing to begin planting,” says Michael Newland, director of agriculture business development. “It’s impossible to prepare for these types of natural disasters, so we hope that these additional incentive dollars will be helpful as producers recover from the sudden destruction tornadoes bring.”

For eligible applicants, the double incentive provides twice the standard incentive amounts for qualifying equipment, including $300 per liter of fuel displacement for propane-powered irrigation engines, up to $30/kW for generators, $1,500 for flame weeding systems and $2,000 for agricultural heaters.

Agricultural operations in areas of Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin are eligible. Applications will be verified by ZIP codes and National Weather Service data.
