JACKSON — A new law says Mississippi can provide up to $17 million in loan guarantees to sweet potato farmers.

Gov. Haley Barbour signed the loan bill March 24, and it became law immediately.

The Mississippi Development Authority can extend the loan guarantees to sweet potato farmers who had disaster-related losses in 2009. Those seeking the state aid must apply by Aug. 1.

The bill is House Bill 1681.
