Frequently Asked Questions

What are my first steps for implementing a propane irrigation engine on my operation?

Reach out to a propane supplier in your area to discuss a fueling schedule and contract. Then connect with your equipment dealer for information on the propane irrigation engines that they carry, work together to determine your engine needs, and don't forget to apply for the Propane Farm Incentive Program once your equipment purchase has been confirmed.

How does the performance of propane-powered irrigation engines compare to the performance of engines powered by other fuels?

Propane is a very efficient fuel for irrigation engines. According to results from the 2014 Propane Farm Incentive Program, producers reported that their new propane-powered irrigation engines performed 28 percent more efficiently and reduced energy costs per hour by 50 percent compared to previously owned diesel units.

As an environmentally conscious farmer, how can a propane-powered irrigation engine help me meet emissions standards?

Propane irrigation engines produce up to eight percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than diesel models, and 18 percent fewer than gasoline engines. EPA- and CARB-certified models are available for sale in all 50 states.
