Numbers are in from the first year of the Propane Farm Incentive Program put on by the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC).
Director of Agriculture Business Development Cinch Munson says it was a promising first year for the program and the council was able to put together some impressive numbers. Munson said aside from the numbers, the response from the participants was overwhelmingly positive. The point of the program is twofold: growers save money on upgrading an irrigation engine in exchange for some stats and figures after they receive the machine. PERC uses that information to help make propane products that are valuable to growers.
