Julia A. Wickard, State Executive Director of USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Indiana announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has designated 36 counties in Indiana as primary natural disaster areas due to losses caused by extreme drought. “Indiana FSA and its employees are committed to helping farmers navigate the multitude of programs that may be available in eligible counties,” said Wickard.  “The Summer of 2012 will not be long forgotten by those producers and their families that were negatively impacted by severe dry weather. USDA is here to assist.”

 

Those counties are:

 

Allen Gibson Marshall St. Joseph
Carroll Grant Martin Spencer
Cass Greene Miami Steuben
Crawford Howard Noble Sullivan
Daviess Huntington Orange Vanderburgh
DeKalb Knox Perry Wabash
Dubois Kosciusko Pike Warrick
Elkhart LaGrange Posey Wells
