PERC to promote propane irrigation engines at Delaware event

November 19, 2012 By    

PERC will hold a live demonstration of propane-fueled irrigation engines Dec. 1 at the annual dealer and consignment auction at Taylor & Messick, a John Deere dealership in Harrington, Del. PERC will display products and discuss the financial incentives available to farmers fueling with propane.

According to PERC, propane-fueled irrigation engines can help farmers protect the environment and save on fuel and maintenance costs. PERC offers incentives of up to $3,000 through its Propane FEED program toward the purchase of a new propane-fueled irrigation engine.

“With more than 215,000 acres of irrigated crop land in Maryland and Delaware, irrigation is pertinent to the livelihood of Delmarva farmers,” says Mark Leitman, PERC’s director of business development and marketing. “Propane-fueled irrigation engines are more reliable and cost effective than electric or diesel engines. They can perform over vast acreage and in a variety of weather conditions, while improving irrigation efficiency, minimizing negative environmental affects and maximizing yields.”
