Six awesome agvocate plates: Are you cruising with one of these?

Published:

If you get a chance to road trip this Labor Day weekend (a day off from farming, yeah right?), you might want to keep an eye out for these specialized state license plates that salute agriculture. From New York to Idaho, Michigan to Georgia, agvocates are adding this nice accessory to their motor vehicles. Next time you are at the DMV, see if your state has one. In the meantime, check out a few fun ones we found:

Of course the Corn State has an agricultural plate! Proceeds from the sale of Iowa’s license supports the Iowa FFA Foundation, the Iowa 4-H Foundation, and the Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation.

New Jersey:
New Jersey wanted to call special attention to its nickname, the Garden State. The plate is the result of collaboration between the New Jersey Farm Bureau and a bill sponsored by Senators Robert Singer and Martha Bark and Assemblymen Christopher “Kip” Bateman and Peter Biondi, which was signed into law on January 29, 2001.

Abraham Lincoln’s former stomping grounds, Illinois is proud of its rich history in corn and soybean production. Proceeds from the sales of the plates go to the Illinois Agriculture Association Foundation, which funds agriculture education efforts in the classroom.

California:
Since the California DMV issued the first ag plates in April 2013, more than 25,000 have been sold, renewed, or transferred in to the state. The ag tag plates support agricultural education programs that connect from farm to fork.

Virginia:
The Old Dominion state commemorated nearly 400 years of farming in the commonwealth with this specialty ag plate. The license features the slogan “Farming Since 1614,” since that was the year that settlers in Jamestown made their first commercial shipment of tobacco to England.
