Tractor Roll-over Protection Program

Posted: September 8, 2011

A program launched earlier this year by Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences aims to put rollover protective structures (ROPS) on hundreds of tractors to save lives of farmers. Through the ROPS Retrofit program, farmers can be reimbursed 70% of the cost of a ROPS kit - a roll bar and seatbelt- up to $765.
