Agricultural producers in one New Mexico county could be eligible for emergency loans.

The United States Department of Agriculture has designated Eddy County as a primary natural disaster area. 

That means producers who suffered losses or damages due to the recent drought can be eligible for a loan to help cover the cost. 

They will have until March 18 of 2019 to apply for the loans.
