Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship’s Feed and Fertilizer Bureau Launches Online Portal to Better Serve Ag Community

New web-based system makes it easier for licensees to complete application, registration, licensing and reporting requirements

DES MOINES, Iowa (Nov. 17, 2020) – Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig announced today that the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship’s Feed and Fertilizer Bureau has launched a new online system to improve customer service. The online portal streamlines the application and renewal processes, offers electronic payment options and gives users real-time access to license and reporting information. Customers are encouraged to utilize the online portal to renew and meet the reporting requirements of their feed, fertilizer and egg handling licenses this fall. The next reporting deadline is Jan. 1, 2021.

“Investing in this new system is just one example of the Department’s continued commitment to customer service,” said Secretary Naig. “It modernizes the way the Department receives and processes feed, fertilizer and egg handling licenses. Now our customers can complete their licensing and reporting requirements faster and easier than ever before.”

This web-based system enables all licensing requirements to be completed online, including feed, fertilizer, ag lime and egg handling licenses.

Current licensees will receive an email with their login information. Then they can visit iowaagriculture.gov/feed-and-fertilizer-online-licensing to sign into the system.

New licensees must visit iowaagriculture.gov/feed-and-fertilizer-online-licensing and create a username and password to access the system.

Once users log-in to the system, they can watch a video to learn how to submit applications, make payments or download reports.

If a licensee does not have email or internet access or an electronic payment method, they can contact the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship’s Feed and Fertilizer Bureau at (515) 281-5321 for assistance.
