IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Federal agriculture officials have issued a disaster declaration for Clark County in eastern Idaho due to a lack of rain for the last two months.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture this week also put four other nearby counties up for possible relief — Butte, Fremont, Jefferson and Lemhi. The declaration makes farmers in the counties eligible for low-interest emergency loans to help cover part of any losses attributed to the dry conditions.

Growers can apply for assistance for the next eight months.
