Your bottom line depends on the quality of your crop. If you're drying grains or curing tobacco, we can promptly provide all the fuel to power your drying system. We also offer risk management programs to help you know your cost going into drying or curing season.
Used by organic farmers and others, back pack or tractor mounted flame weeding torch systems are a natural choice for effective weed control. Weeds are not set on fire, but are killed when the brief but intense heat damages the cell structure of weed foliage.
Propane generators are used on farms for a variety of applications, from providing back-up power to running machinery. They offer significant advantages over diesel- or oil-fueled generators for power generation on a farm because they burn cleanly and are more energy efficient. You can supply power whenever and wherever you need it, including barns and fields well beyond the reach of power lines.
Greenhouses and Nurseries

You rely on your irrigation system. Propane is a very popular choice for powering irrigation pumps because of its lower emissions, longer fuel storage life and prolonged engine life in comparison to gasoline or diesel systems; all while producing an equal amount of energy. Propane is non-toxic to livestock, groundwater and soil. It also has the ability to adjust engine speed without the variable speed drive required by electric motors.
