INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) - Indiana farmers can now get financial help after a difficult planting season.
Governor Eric Holcomb announced farmers in each one of Indiana's 92 counties will be eligible for help.
Holcomb sent a letter to the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture back in July.
He requested the assistance after Indiana saw excessive rain and flooding during the planting season.
The request was approved with a natural disaster declaration.
This means farmers can apply for low-interest emergency loans.
Farmers will have to work through the farm service agency.
