Program aims to help growers buy cleanburning tractors

California growers can apply for incentive money to help purchase clean-burning tractors.

Tractor incentive program offers money to growers

Program offered through San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District Growers must apply before purchasing tractor Information is available online

California growers looking to replace tractors might be eligible for incentive money under a program by the San Joaquin Air Pollution Control District (SJVAPCD).

The Agricultural Tractor Replacement Program provides incentive funds for the replacement of in-use, off-road mobile equipment used in agricultural operations as defined by the California Air Resources Board.

Funds are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Applicants must obtain approval and have a signed, executed contract from the SJVAPCD prior to purchasing the new equipment.  As this is not a rebate program, growers who have already purchased new equipment are not eligible for the program.

Information about the program is available online at the SJVAPCD website.
