Mother nature may not be helping area farmers because of the hot and dry conditions...but some other help may be on the way...the financial type. Muskingum County Commissioners announced this week that Ag Technology grants are now availble. They are geared to the area's 35-hundred farmers. Muskingum county commissioner Don Madden says farmers can get 3000 dollars each. If you are interested in this grant you can contact the U.S.G.A. AT 740- 454-2824. Applications will be taken starting on August 5th.
