The drought has been major obstacle for many farmers in the Rio Grande Valley. Aid is being offered to those who need financial help.
The Farm Service Agency is now accepting applications for emergency loans for farmers who have lost 30% of their production or any physical loss. The deadline is March of next year, but officials urge farmers to submit their loans as soon as possible, because a backlog can develop and cause delays.
The FSA Office is located at 2514 South Veterans Boulevard in Edinburg.
