Over-production of food and environmental concerns have led to 
increased production of non-food crops in the EU, aimed at providing 
the fibre, oil, starch and biomass raw materials for industry.  As agricultural
 production expands in Eastern Europe and elsewhere, there will be a demand 
for graduates with training in the production and use of alternative crops
 for industry.
This new one-year course, run by SAC and validated by the University
 of Aberdeen, aims to satisfy the demand for graduates in an expanding
 area of non-food crop production.  The course covers the agronomy,
 processing, quality and development of crops for industrial uses, and
 gives students the opportunity to carry out research and develop 
transferable skills.

Applications are invited from graduates in agricultural, biological, or
 land-based sciences for entry in September 1997
