FmHA now accepting disaster applications
Aplications for emergency farm loans for losses caused by drought and excessive heat during 1990 crop year for Guadalupe and Comal counties and excessive rainfall and tornadoes between July 15-22, 1990, for Bexar County are being accepted at the Farmers Home Administration (FmHA) office located at 210 E. Liveoak in Seguin, said FmHA County Supervisor James R. Price.
Bexar, Comal and Guadalupe counties are three of 19 in Texas recently named by Secretary of Agriculture Clayton Yeutter as eligible for loans to cover part of actual production losses resulting from the excessive heat, excessive rainfall and tornadoes.
Price said farmers may be eligible for loans of up to 80 percent of their actual losses or the operating loan needed to continue in business or $500,000 whichever is less. For farmer unable to obtain credit from private commercial lenders, the interest
is 4.5 percent.
“As a general rule, a farmer must have supered at least a 30 percent loss of production to be eligible for an FmHA emergency loan,” Price said. Fanners participating in the PDC or Federal Crop Insurance program will have to figure in proceeds from those programs in determining their loss.
“Applications for loans under this emergency designation will be accepted until August 26, 1991, but farmcrsd should apply as soon as possible. Delays in applying could create backlogs in processing and possibly over into the new farming season,” he said.
FmHA is a credit agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It is authorized to provide disaster emergency loans to recognized farmers who work at and rely on farming for a substantial part of their living.
The FmHA office in Seguin is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
