believes this trade lead represents excellent opportunity for U.S. rice
exporters to break into Sri Lankan market for the first time on a commercial
basis. Successful marketing could lead to additional private sales in the
future. However, great care should be taken to choose qualities of rice which
closely approximate "Samba". Also, beleive price should be low enough to
enable Jafferjee to sell the rice locally at 50 cents per kilo or less, if
possible. Exporters should telex quotations direct to Jafferjee, but Embassy
would appreciate receiving copies of correspondence. CONTACT: Zahid

Foreign Trade Leads Available via AGNET. Lately we have been receiving numerous
telephone calls regarding the AGNET system as a means of obtaining foreign trade
leads. While we know many of you have some familiarity with this system, and that we
have announced this system previously, based on the telephone queries we are
repeating this announcement.
Each trade lead we receive from agricultural officers with our Embassies overseas is
disseminated three ways: via Export Briefs, via a direct mailing of leads, and via
Many fims get Export Briefs plus direct mailed leads for selected items. Direct
mailed leads are sent each day and their advantage over Export Briefs is earlier
availability. The cost for a years subscription to Export Briefs is, as you know
$50.00 while direct mailed trade leads cost $10.00 per year, per commodity grouping.
Under the commodity grouping, for example, $10.00 will provide leads for all fresh
vegetables. There is not a charge for each fresh vegetable.
The most expeditious way to receive trade leads is via AGNET. This unique
information delivery system network, managed by the University of Nebraska, is
designed to be used by people without previous knowledge of computers and offers a
variety of programs including trade leads. We electronically transmit all trade
leads to AGNET each day at 2:00 pm Eastern time. The leads are then automatically
placed in AGNET and become available to any firm in the U.S. which is on the system.
It is now possible, for example, for a trade lead to be sent from Bonn, Germany to
Washington, D.C. on a given morning and for that lead to be transmitted to AGNET
early that afternoon. Such lead would become available to you at such time and you
could telex the German firm your response the same day the lead was sent.
The cost of AGENT is: (A) Equipment costs. Portable computer terminals range in
price from some $1,000 to $3,000. Renting options are also available, of course.
Any terminal that can operate over a telephone line, and can type 30 or 120
characters per second, can be used on AGENT. It is possible in many cases to access
AGNET with a microcomputer. (B) Computing costs. The charges vary according to how
hard you make the computer "think" and how much time you use. For example, 13
minutes of computer time for obtaining trade leads, typing 30 characters per second,
costs $1.96. Some 25 leads can be accessed during this period. Conversely, to
access for some two minutes, because of set up time, will cost around $1.00. All
leads transmitted within the last five days are retrievable. Leads can be accessed on
a commodity basis if desired. (C) Telephone costs. Any regular telephone can be
used to access AGENT. The cost of the call wilT depend on your location, the time of
day the call is placed, and length of call.
For further information write AGNET, 105 Miller Hall, University of Nebraska,
Lincoln, Nebraska 68583-0713. or call (402) 472-1892.
