Trade Leads Available via AGNET

As announced in Issue No. 11 trade leads, in addition to Export Briefs and direct
mailing, are being disseminated via a computer system called AGNET. All leads
received are disseminated these three ways. During July 1982 trade leads were
accessed via AGNET 1,340 times.

Trade leads are electronically transmitted daily from FAS to the AGNET system, which
is managed by the University of Nebraska. The advantage of this system is that it
enables firms to receive trade leads on a much more timely basis. The lag between
the time trade leads are received from our overseas staff and the time they come to
your attention has long been a concern of FAS's. Now there is an alternative to the
mail system.

AGNET is a unique information delivery network designed to be used by people with no
previous knowledge of computers. Besides timely information for keeping up to date
on market conditions, etc., it can also assist users in problem solving of
agricultural management questions and can be used as an electronic mail box.

The cost to use AGNET is: (a) Equipment costs. The portable computer terminals which
"talk" to the central computer in Nebraska range in price from $1,000 to $3,000. A
number of firms likely have such a terminal already. (b) Computer charges. The cost
of accessing five trade leads is around $1.50, less if more leads are accessed per
entry to the system. All leads transmitted within the past five days are available.
Leads can be accessed on a commodity basis if desired. (c) Telephone charges. Any
regular telephone can be used to access AGNET. The cost of the long distance call
will depend on your location and the time of day the call is placed.

For further information write AGNET, 105 Miller Hall, University of Nebraska,
Lincoln, Nebraska 68583-0713, or call (402) 472-1892.


Effective October 1, 1982, The free distribution of foreign trade leads

1982, Federal Register: Quote. Notice The newsletter Export Briefs, trade
lead mailouts, and trade lists of the Trade Opportunity Referral Service,

Foreign Agricultural Service, will now be subject to a reasonable user fee
to cover the cost of computer time, duplicating, handling, and mailing. The
fees will be as follows:

(1) $50 for a yearly subscription to Export Briefs.
(2) $10 per commodity, per year, to receive individual foreign trade
leads via direct mail. Unquote.

subscriptions are payable in advance, by check or money order only. Make

Unless you indicate otherwise, the information contained in this
subscription will be provided, upon request, to foreign buyers and U.S.
firms looking for suppliers of the products(s) you offer. If you desire,
