New Nevada Agriculture License Plate Available Monday

Posted: Updated:
From the Nevada Department of Agriculture:

The Nevada Department of Agriculture and Nevada FFA announced today that the new Nevada agriculture license plate is available for sale from the Department of Motor Vehicles starting Monday, July 14, 2014.

“The FFA Foundation redesigned the plate to reflect the breadth of the agriculture industry’s contribution to the state economy, estimated at $5.3 billion total economic impact,” said Jim Barbee, director of the Nevada Department of Agriculture. “We also wanted to reflect the importance of this vibrant industry by ensuring Nevada’s youth agricultural education organizations – Nevada FFA and 4H – were represented on the plate.

“Our children are the future of agriculture, and it’s important that we continue to demonstrate the critical role of agriculture in putting food into grocery stores and on dinner tables.”

The plate is available from DMV offices and online at http://www.dmvnv.com/platescharitable.htm. Sales of the license plate benefit Nevada FFA Foundation and agricultural education throughout the state, as well as the Buy Nevada program (www.buynevada.org), a Nevada Department of Agriculture program that promotes the state’s food and agricultural businesses.

The initial plate fee is $61 with an annual fee of $30. Personalized plates are $96.

The existing agriculture license plate may continue to be used on continually registered vehicles, but it will no longer be available for purchase starting July 14, 2014. If the old plate is ever surrendered, or expired for more than the 30 days, a new plate will have to be purchased.
