Did You Know--October 2, 1994

The Russian Agricultural Listserv is sponsored by the
University of Maryland College of Agriculture at College Park,
the Research and Scientific Exchanges Division, Foreign
Agriculture Service/International Cooperation and Development,
U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the National Committee on
International Science and Education of the Joint Council on Food
and Agricultural Sciences.


Dear RUSAG-L readers,

Sorry these messages have been rather sporadic lately.  Various other
commitments prevent me from sending the RUSAG List messages as often as I
would like.  I'll do my best keep you all informed with what news I hear.
Thanks for your patience.
