Disaster assistance available to farmers

The executive director of the state Farm Service Agency, Jeffrey S. Hall, announced that 103 Kentucky counties are eligible for federal disaster assistance, including FSA emergency loans, based on the disaster declaration signed by President Bush.

Boyle, Casey, Mercer, Lincoln and Garrard counties are among those eligible, due to damages and losses caused by severe storms, flooding, tornadoes and mudslides that occurred from May 26 and continuing.

FSA will make loans, up to $500,000 per borrower, at a statutory 3.75 percent interest rate, subject to a test for credit. Applications must be filed with the local FSA county office no later than Feb. 10 for physical and production losses.
