Courses and conferences Postharvest technology by distance learning January 1999 onwards In order to provide access to its training courses for people in ACP Countries and elsewhere who cannot attend courses in person in the UK, the Natural Resources Institute is introducing two new and innovative computer-mediated distance learning programmes. Participants with access to a computer (486 DX and above), modem and telephone can continue their professional development from their own home or work place, at times convenient to them, by simply connecting to a local provider. The programmes cover - Grain storage management: the principles and practices of managing cereal grains, pulses, oilseeds and other durable commodities in farmer, trader and large-scale postharvest systems. PostHarvest Horticulture: the principles and practices fundamental to good postharvest management and marketing of tropical, sub-tropical and temperate perishable horticultural crops. Successful completion of the programmes will lead to a post-graduate diploma or MSc. Details are available on the programme home page of the NRI Website: http://www.nri.org/Training/gsm/gsm.htm or contact: The Training Officer, Natural Resources Institute, University of Greenwich, Chatham ME4 4TB, UK.
