AM Live Ag Report

FRESNO, Calif. The California Farm Bureau says farmers have put on hold planting rice, tomatoes, cotton and other row crops because of wet ground. How soon farmers may be able to begin field work depends on the type of soil on their farms and how much rain falls.

Special license plates that promote California agriculture could appear on vehicles as soon as next year.

The State Department of Food And Agriculture has announced the program. Money collected from license plate sales would benefit youth leadership development, career awareness, and training activities primarily serving secondary school students.

The D.M.V. will begin issuing the plates once 7,500 have been ordered. The cost would be $50 more than regular vehicle registration.
