Iowa Agriculture Specialty License Plate


We are excited to announce that we have more than 500 pre-orders of the specialty agriculture license plate and the plates are now in production. 


We are no longer accepting pre-orders for the plates. 


After September 1 you will be able to order your own specialty agriculture license plate online through the Iowa Department of Transportation




In person through your county treasurer's office.





































The new agriculture specialty license plate is a great way to show your pride for the #1 industry in Iowa - AGRICULTURE!


Proceeds from the sale of the plate will support three important youth organizations that help students learn about agriculture, leadership, and life skills. 

The Iowa FFA Foundation serves the 14,800 student member organization in 225 chapters across Iowa. They help 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. They serve more than 100,000 youth 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. We coordinate and support the Agriculture in the Classroom efforts throughout the state.
