(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Some Oklahoma agriculture businesses that sustained crop losses because of a drought have less than a month to file for low-interest disaster loans.

The Small Business Administration announced yesterday that 39 Oklahoma counties have until April 22nd to apply for the loans.

Losses from a drought that occurred from August first, 2001, to the present are being considered.

Farmers and ranchers are not eligible.
