Severe Midwest Drought Continues

There is no question about it, the scorching toll of this summer’s drought has finally reared its ugly head, as the federal government has officially declared all 92 Indiana counties agriculture disaster areas.

Earlier this week, the Department of Agriculture issued a report that added 12 more Indiana counties to the 78 others that have already been classified as natural disaster areas.

Farmers operating in every county in Indiana now qualify to participate in the application process for low-interest loans to assist in covering a portion of what has perished in the drought.

Unfortunately, industry experts say that unless Congress moves forward in approving supplemental assistance under a new farm bill low-interest loans will be the Hoosier farmer’s only outlet for drought assistance.
