    Sec. 5-412. The county board, of each county, may contract
with persons growing row crops on land adjacent to county
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
county board in any such case shall be the higher of the market
price in the local area of such crop at the time of contracting
or the current Commodity Credit Corporation target price. An
additional sum of money equal to at least 10% of the contract
