Across the United States, thousands of farmers are changing how they power their irrigation systems. According to the PROPANE EDUCATION AND RESOURCE COUNCIL (PERC), data shows that from 2008 to 2013, 25 percent more farms added propane-powered irrigation and, as a result, nearly 1.1 million acres were irrigated with systems driven by propane in 2013. Why are so many farmers making the change? Propane is a high-performance, cost-effective option that’s right for nearly any operation.
