WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -
The US Department of Agriculture has designated 43 Iowa counties as part of a secretarial natural disaster program because of freezes in April. Farmers who suffered major production losses from the freeze will be eligible for low-interest emergency loans.
A secretarial natural disaster declaration has been issued for nine counties as part of the primary disaster area: Audubon, Chickasaw, Clayton, Delaware, Greene, Harrison, Jackson, Johnson & Lee. Thirty-four Iowa counties are contiguous to this designated disaster area, making these farmers also potentially eligible for the disaster loans.
The final date for making an application under this designation is March 11, 2013.
Interested farmers may contact their local county FSA office for further information on eligibility requirements and application procedures for these and other programs.
