The master list shall also contain the name and address of the secured party, the name and address of the borrower, a description of the farm products, including amount where applicable, subject to the security interest, and a reasonable description of the real estate, including the county, where the farm products are located.
II. The secretary of state shall maintain a list of all buyers of farm products, commission merchants, and selling agents who register with the secretary of state indicating an interest in receiving the lists described in paragraph III. The fee for such registration shall be $100 annually.
