§ 2. In order to enhance the sales of Illinois grain, the Illinois Department of Agriculture and the University of Illinois, in cooperation with other interested organizations and institutions, may develop a program of research and information to provide foreign buyers with accurate commercial grain measures of quality factors, including those not currently used in United States Department of Agriculture grain grades or standards. High priority should be given to the development of measurements of quality characteristics that are of economic importance to wet corn millers, dry corn millers, and soybean processors in international markets. The program should:

(a) identify those grain characteristics that are economically important in influencing quality and quantity of processed products;

(b) develop new technologies which can be used for the commercial measurement of these characteristics;

(c) assist in demonstration shipments that will persuade foreign processors that they can increase their profits through the purchase of Illinois grain with these special characteristics;

(d) assist the Illinois Crop Improvement Association, independent inspection agencies, other commercial firms, and other interested organizations to provide these accurate measures until such time that these measures become generally available through such commercial firms;

(e) demonstrate the use of a computerized clearing house concept to help buyers locate adequate supplies of grain with the desired quality characteristics; and

(f) provide that the laboratories of the Illinois Department of Agriculture and the University of Illinois may be used to inspect and analyze the grain quality measurements used and shall report the results to the requesting party.
