(from Ch. 121, par. 4-217)
The Department may contract with persons growing row crops
on land adjacent to State highways to buy standing strips of such crops
to remain in place to act as snow breaks along such highways in those places
where experience shows that drifting snow has been an obstruction to traffic.
The contract price to be paid by the Department in any such case shall be
the market price of such crop at the time of contracting or the September
price of such crop on the Chicago Board of Trade, whichever is higher.
