Kentucky farmers may be able to utilize federal relief programs to get help for farm-related losses incurred since April 30 as a result of severe storms, flooding, mudslides, straight line winds and tornadoes.

Producers who suffered at least a 30 percent loss in crop production or livestock products may apply for aid from the Emergency Loan Program (ELP). Owner-operators or tenant operators of family farms can take advantage of a low 3.75 percent interest rate to borrow up to 100 percent of actual production or physical losses up to $500,000.
