Iowa now offering new agriculture license plate

A new agriculture license plate is now available throughout Iowa for passenger vehicles, trucks and trailers.

The plate recognizes the important role that agriculture plays in the Iowa economy. Revenue from the sale of the plate will support three youth organizations that help students learn about agriculture, leadership and life skills.

The three organizations are the Iowa FFA Foundation, Iowa 4-H Foundation and Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation.

“Agriculture in Iowa is so important to the state economy,” said Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation Executive Director Will Fett. “Having a license plate on your personal vehicle is just a great way to show your support for agriculture and these youth organizations.”

The Iowa FFA Foundation serves the 14,800-student member organization in 225 chapters across Iowa. It helps students develop their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success.

The Iowa 4-H Foundation provides funds for many of the opportunities that help young people enhance their ability to use critical thinking, leadership, communication and social skills. It serves more than 100,000 youths in Iowa.

The Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation serves as the central resource for educators and volunteers who want to teach Iowa’s students about agriculture. IALF coordinates and supports the Agriculture in the Classroom efforts throughout the state.
