Propane Council to Showcase New Flame Weeding Equipment at 2024 World Ag Expo

PERC to feature new propane technology and tackle myths about propane’s importance as a clean energy source.  

WASHINGTON (January 2024) – The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) invites World Ag Expo attendees to stop by the Western Propane Gas Association booth to view new propane-powered farm equipment and learn the truth about propane’s role in the clean energy movement. 

At booth WS20 and WS22 — located at West Street lots 20 and 22 — visitors can view a variety of propane equipment, including a new flame weeding system from FlameWerks. This modern flaming technology is an organic, non-chemical weed control solution that is more powerful, sustainable, and effective, while also saving farmers’ time and money 

“In addition to the obvious cost and efficiency benefits of propane-powered farm equipment, propane has many benefits that producers may have overlooked in the past but are even more important today,” said Mike Newland, director of agriculture business development at PERC. “Because propane is stored on site, it gives producers the reliable energy they need to keep operations running regardless of weather or access to the grid system. And advancements in technology mean propane equipment offers more versatility and efficiency than ever before.”

As an approved alternative fuel under the Clean Air Act, propane makes it easy for producers to exceed Tier 4 Standards and EPA regulations without sacrificing power or productivity. 

Propane-powered equipment delivers the precise temperatures and consistent power necessary to keep operations running smoothly, and on-site storage capabilities ensure anytime and anywhere energy access. 

Propane equipment is also extremely versatile, including but not limited to:

  • Irrigation engines
  • Crop drying
  • Generators
  • Flame weeding systems
  • Water and building heating
  • Grain dryers
  • Forklifts
