Governor Tim Walz announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has designated 11 more Minnesota counties as primary natural disaster areas in addition to those announced on February 5, 2020.

Due to multiple disasters in 2019, including high winds, hail, excessive rain and snow, flash flooding, and drought, producers in Stevens, Grant, Traverse, Cottonwood, Jackson, Kittson, Koochiching, Lake of the Woods, Nobles, Norman, and Roseau Counties will be eligible to apply for assistance from the USDA Farm Service Agency. This assistance includes FSA emergency loans.
Farmers should contact their local Farm Service Agency office for more information.
