Subject: for posting on RUSAG; dictionary?? (x-post from RUSAG-L)

Dear RUSAG subscribers, friends and colleagues,

Does anyone know where I (and some other interested parties)
could find a short Russian-English dictionary or glossary of
common agricultural terms?  I have a three-page list that is
focused on terms used in sustainable agriculture, but we would
like to expand this for use in some training programs we are
designing.

If you know of, or have clues to the whereabouts of, such
materials, please post a message (either to me or to the list as a
whole) - Thanks!!

Sincerely,

Will Easton
Ag Initiative Director
Center for Citizen Initiatives, San Francisco
