Ag producers in 92 Kansas counties can get emergency loans

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has designated seven more Kansas counties as primary natural disaster areas due to the drought. They are Allen, Bourbon, Butler, Harvey, Sedgwick, Wilson and Woodson counties.

They joined 70 other regions that have already received this title this year. Farmers and agriculturists in these 70 districts and adjoining districts are eligible for emergency loans. See the chart below to find your county.

The USDA uses the US Drought Monitor to determine which counties are experiencing the most intense drought. The current US Drought Monitor map shows every county in Kansas has cause for concern.

On the map below, deep red indicates areas of exceptional drought. It covers 33.42% of the state. Red, 24.84% of the state, indicates extreme drought. Orange means severe drought. Covers 21.05% of Kansas. Tan shows mild drought in 13.25% of the state. And yellow in north-central Kansas represents abnormally dry conditions. It covers 7.44% of the state. The US Drought Monitor uses white to indicate drought or drought.

If you click through the slideshow above, you’ll see US Drought Monitor maps from last month, last year, five years ago, and 10 years ago.

USDA Farm Service Agency emergency loans can be used for recovery needs such as livestock equipment, refinancing certain debts, and reorganizations.

When reviewing loans, the FSA will consider the extent of the producer’s losses, available collateral and ability to repay.

The chart below shows the dates when USDA designated counties as Primary Natural Disaster Areas or as contiguous counties. The last column in the table represents the application deadline that was listed each time the USDA designated a county. We reached out to the USDA to see if ag producers can use the cut-off date in this column. We haven’t heard back yet.

Atchison, Brown, Doniphan, Douglas, Franklin, Jackson, Jefferson, Johnson, Lyon, Miami, Osage, Shawnee and Wyandotte are among the 13 Kansas counties that have not yet qualified for emergency loans due to drought natural disasters.
