Calhoun, Jackson, Victoria and Wharton counties are four of the 75 in Texas recently named by Secretary of Agriculture Ed Schafer eligible for loans to cover part of actual production losses.

FSA agent Gail A. Hoskins said farmers may be eligible for loans up to 100 percent of their actual losses or the operating loan needed to continue the agricultural business, whichever is less.

Designation will be accepted until May 12, but farmers should apply as soon as possible. Delays could create backlogs in processing, with possible delays into the new farming season, Hoskins said.
