Low-interest loans are available through the USDA's Farm Service Agency for growers looking to add on-farm crop storage or renovate existing storage.

Loan rates currently are between 3 percent for a seven-year term and 3.625 percent for a 12-year term.

"The important thing on these loans is to go to the local FSA office and apply before you get started on the construction," said Tony Meeuwsen, program specialist for Oregon state FSA.
