Trade Leads now available on AGNET
The Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) is pleased to report that trade leads are now
being disseminated via a computer system called AGNET. The trade leads which are
contained in Export Briefs are transmitted daily to this computer system, which is
managed by The University of Nebraska. After a period of 90 days we will invite user
feedback to assess the usefulness of this approach.
While we will be continuing our publication of Export Briefs, AGNET 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 will be an alternative to the mail
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 acessing one trade lead is around $1.00, 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.
