Agricultural Applications of Propane: Crop Drying

The agricultural applications of propane are numerous. The Propane Education & Research Council points out that propane is used on 865,000 U.S. farms for irrigation pumps, grain dryers, standby generators, and other farm equipment.Β  In our Agricultural Applications of Propane series, we will take a look at the role of propane in the following:Β tobacco curing, grain drying, fruit drying and crop drying. Today, let’s look into how propane factors into crop drying.

Propane-powered drying systems help farmers get better prices for crops that must meet market specifications for moisture content. Propane grain dryers also limit fungus and bacterial growth and can allow farmers to harvest their crops with some flexibility, more independently of the weather. Moreover, 90% of the propane drawn from tanks is converted to energy – which means less waste and lower costs.
