New Nevada Agriculture License Plate

License plate sales benefit ag education and Nevada’s agricultural industry promotion: The new Nevada agriculture license plate has been available for sale from the Department of Motor Vehicles since Monday, July 14, 2014. The plate has been redesigned to reflect the breadth of the agriculture industry’s contribution to the state economy, estimated at $5.3 billion total economic impact. 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,” said Jim Barbee, Nevada Department of Agriculture Director.

The plate is available from DMV offices and online. 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), which 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 after July 14, 2014. If the old plate is never surrendered, or expired for more than the 30 days, a new plate will have to be purchased. Contact Bob Conrad at 775-353-3603, or Heather Dye at 775-721-6052, for more information.
