Third National New Crops Symposium Planned for 1995

Plans for the Third National New Crops Symposium to be held in the fall of 1995 in Indianapolis are underway. The third conference organized by the Indiana Center for New Crops and Plant Products will emphasize the technical aspects of new crops and new uses. The theme of the conference will be New Crops, New Uses, New Technologies. Among the cosponsors of the symposium will be The American Association of Industrial Crops, the New Uses Council, Alternative Agricultural Research and Commercialization Center, the Center for Alternative Plant and Animal Products-University of Missouri, Impact Center-Washington State University, Kansas' Alternative Use Programs, and the United States Department of Agriculture and the Cooperative States Research Service. The two previous symposia held in Indianapolis in 1988 and 1991 have resulted in two books: Advances in New Crops (1990) published by Timber press and New Crops (1993) published by Wiley Press.
