PROPANE RESEARCH: Mike Newland, PERC director of agriculture business development (left), and Cinch Munson, PERC senior vice president of business development, gather at Husker Harvest Days.

The Nebraska Propane Gas Association and the Propane Education and Research Council invite producers to stop by their booth at this year’s Husker Harvest Days to view new propane equipment and a live engine demonstration, and to learn more about incentives toward the purchase of new agricultural equipment.

Qualifying equipment purchases are eligible for incentives through the Propane Farm Incentive Program and NPGA. 

“Husker Harvest Days provides a great opportunity for farmers to view new propane equipment and live equipment demonstrations,” says Cinch Munson, senior vice president of business development at PERC. “We have some incredible incentives available on new propane-powered equipment, so it’s definitely worth stopping by to learn more about the advantages propane provides. We can also answer any questions producers might have.”

The booth will feature numerous irrigation engines, including some of the newest models from Industrial Irrigation and the new Reliable Horsepower line, Husker Power Products, and Anderson Industrial, along with a dual-fuel irrigation engine from ASR.

In addition to the propane-powered agriculture equipment, the booth will display a propane-powered pickup from Otte Oil and Propane, as well as a standby generator and propane grill.

As always, PERC and NPGA will feature a live water pumping demonstration, featuring a new engine from Reliable Horsepower by Industrial Irrigation. This new line will feature seven different engines that are all EPA-certified, including propane-dedicated and vi-fuel engines.

For fun, the exhibit will offer a propane-branded set of Corn Hole as an entertaining attraction for visitors.

There will be manufacturer representatives available throughout the show, along with PERC and NPGA representatives to discuss the benefits of these new-generation propane engines, including reliability and power, and the new technologies available. You can learn more by visiting
