Ag Disaster Declaration for Beltrami, Clearwater counties

Governor Tim Walz says the U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced primary agricultural disaster designations for Beltrami and Clearwater counties, and five others.

According to a release, multiple disasters in August and November in 2019 that included a tornado, high winds, excessive rain and flooding prompted this designation.

Producers in these counties will be able to apply for assistance from the USDA Farm Service Agency, including FSA emergency loans.
