FSA May Help Valley Farmers

The Farm Service Agency recently announced that it would offer aid to California farmers still struggling with the effects of an ongoing drought.
For most of last year, farmers around the country found themselves in the grip of one of the worst droughts in recent memory. From California to Ohio, record high temperatures and record low precipitation pummeled farmers and devastated crop production.
Despite the end of the summer, most farmers are still not out of the woods. In many areas, the drought is still ongoing and rainfall remains at all-time lows.
In California’s Central Valley, the FSA is offering access to low interest loans and disaster aid to farmers who have suffered losses to the drought.
“We are getting the word out so people know what is available to them but also reminding people in the rest of the world we have a problem in the Valley and we really have to get it resolved,” Congressman David Valadao, who has committed himself to informing his constituents of available federal aid, said.
Despite recent federal aid, these types of disasters may become more and more frequent as regions across the country face the impact of global climate change, leading to longer hotter summers and drier winters.
