West Texas farmer Billy Brown remembers the devastating drought that spanned the state in the 1950s _ and believes this one is worse.

Brown is among the farmers and ranchers across all of Texas who can now apply for low-interest emergency loans after the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Tuesday designated the entire state a natural disaster area.

Texas is enduring its worst drought in decades as high temperatures, windy conditions and lack of rainfall persist across most of the state.

Because the dry conditions across the nation’s second-leading agricultural state come as commodity prices are strong, Brown said farmers and ranchers are taking an even larger financial hit.
