Agriculture Advisory Committee (AAC)

    Propane Grain Dryer

    The Agriculture Advisory Committee pursues development of technology and applications to expand use of propane in agriculture. As required by law, at least 5 percent of the funds collected by PERC are used for agriculture-related programs and projects.The Agriculture Advisory Committee guides PERC’s search for innovative solutions that help farmers keep productivity high and operating costs down while at the same time increasing propane sales and balancing propane's seasonal business cycles.The committee focuses on the demonstration and validation of propane-related agricultural technologies in four primary application areas:

    •    Thermal agriculture.
    •    Crop and food conditioning.
    •    Nutrient management.
    •    Power.
