Propane works for North Carolina farms

farmFarming makes for a long workday and a longer to-do list.

That list could include irrigating and fertilizing fields, plowing, shoveling manure, harvesting, feeding and watering livestock, maintaining and fixing equipment and buildings, weeding, making fresh beds for livestock, doing bookkeeping and other office tasks and so many other jobs. It’s easy to see why North Carolina farmers are often working 10 hours a day or more.

That’s why propane is such a good fuel choice. Propane and propane-powered equipment help farmers improve efficiency, cut costs and be more environmentally friendly.

Propane is versatile, efficient

North Carolina’s agriculture industry is diverse and very productive. We have more than 46,000 farm operations and are the nation’s top producer of sweet potatoes, the second-leading producer of poultry and eggs and the third in pork and trout. Among our other agricultural products are corn, soybeans, cotton, wheat and peanuts.
And propane works for all these kinds of farms. Here’s how:

Propane: Good for the earth

North Carolina’s soil, water and air are some of our farmers’ most precious resources. Using propane at your farm helps protect those resources by being more efficient with fuel and reducing emissions. Also, there are no environment-damaging spills.

You can also keep weeds under control without using herbicides. Propane-powered flame weeders don’t pollute, are more effective and there’s no waiting after treatment to get back to work.
