Flame weeding is a quick, effective, chemical-free method of weed control. It is a highly effective and efficient way to remove small broadleaf weeds. Weed flaming is used by organic farmers and others to reduce the use of chemical weed killers. Back pack or tractor mounted flame weeding torches are an excellent choice for effective weed control.
Propane generators are used on farms and plantations for a wide variety of applications. They provide back-up power to machinery, and offer significant advantages over diesel or oil fueled generators, because they burn cleanly and are much more energy efficient. Propane generators can supply power whenever and wherever you need it, including barns and fields when you power well beyond the reach of power lines.
Greenhouses and Nurseries
Propane fueled heaters are a very efficient way of heating your greenhouses, offering you the ability to use them year round. We can help you calculate the number of BTUs you will require based on the size of your greenhouse.
To keep your crops healthy and growing, you rely on your irrigation system. Farmers who use propane rather than diesel to power irrigation pumps can reduce their costs significantly. Studies have shown that newer propane powered irrigation engines are up to 30% more efficient than older models, which equates to substantial savings on an annual basis. Propane is non-toxic, so it will not harm livestock or contaminate groundwater and soil.
Poultry and Swine Brooding
Whether you’re operating space heaters, radiant brooders or both, we’ve got your fuel needs covered.
