The Farm Service Agency announced on Friday that producers in Barnes, Cass and Richland Counties may now apply FSA Emergency Loans.
FSA Farm Loan Manager Larry Schroeder said farmers who suffered physical and production losses due to combined effects of:
frosts and freezes in late spring and early fall
excessive rain, flooding, ground saturation
periods of unseasonably cool spring temperatures
excessive summer heat
weather related insects
that occurred Jan. 1, 2011, and continuing may now apply.
