propane-grainFarmers at Commodity Classic were showing increased interest in upgrading their grain dryers to high efficiency propane units.

Cinch Munson with the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC) says their research shows that a new propane grain dryer can result in 50% efficiency savings. “PERC has worked with a number of grain dryers manufacturers over the past few years to upgrade the efficiency of grain dryers on the market,” he said. In addition, PERC offers incentive programs to help farmers with the purchase price of a new grain dryer. “There’s also other grant programs available to help people purchase high efficiency grain dryers,” said Munson.

In this interview, Munson also talks about more interest in propane-powered lawnmowers and propane heating systems for animal containment facilities and greenhouses: [wpaudio url=”″ text=”Interview with Cinch Munson, PERC”]
