Crop Drying Using Propane
Making sure your crops are dry is an essential part of running an agricultural business. Propane powers drop drying technology much more efficiently than other fuel sources. There are many reasons why this is the case.
- Propane burns at a similar efficiently to gas yet is priced generally lower.
- Propane is portable so there's no need to install supply lines to connect with other fuels.
- Crop dryer machines currently on the market run 50% more efficiently than their older counterparts.
Not drying your crops can affect the return on your harvest. Too much water content in the crops can allow them to spoil faster lowering their shelf life. You can also save on transporting your harvest since the weight of the harvest will decrease allowing you to ship more for less.
Crop drying is one of the many reasons why over 600,000 farms in the United States incorporate using propane in their daily operations. Contact us now so one of Keystone Propane’s field sales representatives can consult you on using propane in the crop drying process.
