As drought conditions continue in the Southeast, USDA has declared 152 Georgia counties and 41 Alabama counties as primary natural disaster areas due to unseasonably low temperatures, frost and freezing conditions that occurred from April 6, 2007, through April 8, 2007.
In addition, nine North Florida counties and 10 Alabama counties are included in the Georgia declaration because they are contiguous. The declaration allows farmers in those areas to be eligible for low interest emergency loans from USDA’s Farm Service Agency.
