Ag. Commissioner Farmer Urges Farmers Affected By Flooding To Seek Relief

Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer said Thursday that Kentucky farmers may be able to utilize federal relief programs to get help for farm-related losses incurred since April 30 as a result of severe storms, flooding, mudslides, straight line winds and tornadoes. “Kentucky farmers have lost thousands of acres of crops, and some had farm equipment and fences damaged,” Farmer said. “I want them to know they are not alone. There are several programs available through the Farm Service Agency to assist them in their recovery.”
