As we continue to discuss the uses of natural gas, what about its ties to irrigation for agriculture? Yes, we’re talking about the original form of “making it rain.” Irrigation systems allow farmers to increase yield by efficiently managing water delivery over large areas. How does natural gas help? Along with being critical to the manufacture of irrigation components, natural gas also serves as a fuel source for many of the irrigation-related devices. Gas is used either directly as a fuel source, or indirectly at power generation stations that deliver electricity to the equipment. If you have a specific question, send us a message or plan to join us at the Eastern Gas Compression Roundtable, May 3-5, 2022 at the David Lawrence Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh, PA.
