Emergency loans are being made available to farmers whose crops were affected by drought, wind and fires earlier this year. Lee Hartford of the Kansas Farm Service Agency says these emergency loans are designed to assist farmers who are being faced with crop failures.
Farmers may qualify if they have crop losses to report in the counties that were recently declared natural disaster areas by the U-S Department of Agriculture. Low-interest emergency loans of up to 500 thousand dollars are available. The deadline for filing is January 10th of next year.
