Propane for Agriculture

Why propane is the right fuel for farming

agriculturalMore than half of American farmers work more than 10 hours a day. It’s rewarding, challenging work, and you need every advantage you can get.

Propane helps provide advantages in many ways all over your farm. And propane dealers all over Georgia offer propane services and equipment to help your farm succeed.

One advantage of propane is that its an on-site energy source. You’re not at the mercy of a utility like you are with electricity.

Unlike gasoline or diesel, propane is safe for the environment. It will not harm air, soil, water or plant life in the rare event of a leak. Gasoline and diesel can. And without the emissions of gasoline and diesel, propane creates a safer work environment for you and your workers.

Here are just some of the ways propane gets the job done on farms like yours:

  • clean-burning, efficient irrigation engines
  • crop dryers that help you keep more of your yield that would be lost to rot if left to dry outdoors, and are also up to 50% more efficient than crop dryers powered by other fuels
  • orchard heating that is safe for the soil, unlike diesel heaters with their risk of spills
  • environmentally friendly flame weed control that eliminates the need for herbicides and lets you get back to work in the field sooner
  • heating barns, outbuildings, greenhouses, poultry and hog houses, as well as your home
  • space heating
  • water heating
  • backup generators that keep your barns, home and other buildings lit, warm and safe no matter what the weather
  • fuel for forklifts that are not only more powerful and efficient than electric forklifts, but also can operate both indoors and out, thanks to extremely low emissions
