TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has asked for
an agricultural disaster designation for Scott County.

Sebelius sent a letter Wednesday to U.S. Secretary of Agriculture
Tom Vilsack for help in western Kansas dealing with crop production
losses due to severe weather conditions.

She says drought and high winds have adversely impacted corn, sorghum and wheat production.

A federal disaster designation makes farmers and ranchers eligible for low-interest loans.
