虽然有时被称为「玉米之州」(Corn State),但爱荷华其实是美国的产粮地区,境内有90%的土地都是农地。主要的出产品是玉米及猪肉。以爱荷华河为名,而这条河流是为了纪念爱荷华人,或称爱荷华族印地安人。爱荷华于1846年添加联邦,成为美国第29州。它的州花是野玫瑰,而首府是第蒙(Des Moines)


Although it is sometimes called the "Corn State," Iowa really is a breadbasket for the U.S., with 90 percent of its land devoted to farming. The main products are corn and hogs. Named for the Iowa River, which was named for the Iowa, or Ioway, Indians, Iowa joined the Union in 1846 as the 29th state. The wild rose is the state flower and the capital is Des Moines.
