The drought that continues to grip Kansas isn't only affecting farmers and livestock producers. Many non-farming businesses have also been hurt.
The state Agriculture Department says small, non-farming operations in 47 counties may qualify for low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration. They're intended to offset economic losses that can be directly linked to drought conditions since mid-July.
Qualifying operations may also include small agricultural cooperatives, some nonprofits and a few others.
