Make the Switch to Propane

Propane is equipped to operate and meet all of your agricultural needs including heating, irrigation pumps, and flaming technology.

If you’re considering making the switch to propane for your farm, Foster Fuels, Inc. can help.

Heating Systems

Propane-fueled technology is safe for use in buildings that house livestock due to its low-emission also using 15-20% less energy than in-direct heaters. Its variable rate technology allows for more consistent and fuel-efficient heating – reliably covering your heating needs.

Flaming Technology

Propane not only heats your agri-business but also controls herbicide resistant weeds through flaming technology. An approved solution for organic farming, this application can be used when soil is wet, or under windy conditions and allows farmers to return to the field immediately after treatment.

In contrast to herbicide application, flaming technology more than doubles the level of weed control obtained using only cultivation. It also does not damage soul microbes, reduces tillage and moisture loss. This practice enables more cost-effective treatment than hand weeding and organic herbicides.

Irrigation

Switching to propane engines can also cut your irrigation costs up to $4,000, far less than diesel irrigation engines. These engines also produce up to 24% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline and 11% fewer GHG emissions than diesel engines. Propane models are available in all 50 states after EPA and CARB emissions certification.
