LEARN MORE ABOUT AGRICULTURAL USE OF PROPANE

Nearly 900,000 farms in the United States use propane, and with good reason. Propane is a clean-burning, reliable, and efficient energy source. Farmers can depend on propane to cost effectively and responsibly run their operations both in and out of the field.

The Propane Education and Research Act (PERA) recognizes the important role of propane in agriculture and requires that PERC devote at least 5 percent of its total budget toward programs and projects that benefit the U.S. agricultural industry. PERC uses these resources to benefit the U.S. agriculture and propane industries by developing and improving propane-fueled technologies and programs that increase farm productivity, reduce environmental impact and enhance safety.
