The director of ag business for the Propane Education and Research Council says propane-powered engines can help farmers lower their input costs.
Mike Newland says propane is a cheaper alternative to diesel.
“Prices haven’t gone crazy,” he said. “Sometimes we see that if we get big cold events, it can run prices up in a hurry. That hasn’t happened.”
He tells Brownfield propane also helps reduce emissions.
“Our fuel just burns incredibly clean,” Newland said.
