As you may or may not be aware the National Non-Food Crops Centre
(NNFCC) has recently been launched in York with the remit to 'Provide a
single, independent and authoritative source of information on the use
and implementation of non-food crop products and technologies in the UK.
The Centre will disseminate scientific and technical information on
these issues as widely as possible in order to increase knowledge and
understanding, to initiate and facilitate technology uptake and to meet
the Government's and society's wider objectives for sustainable
NNFCC is currently sponsored by DTI and DEFRA, however we invite
organisations and individuals to sponsor or subscribe to the NNFCC for
which they receive a number of extra services that are not available to
the general public.
We are currently building a website as a central resource for
organsations/individuals interested in non-food crops. The site
currently holds useful reports, links, contacts, plant data etc. I have
placed a link to your website under the 'Databases' section and i am now
seeking your approval for this action. If you would like to be removed
from this section/the website please let me know, alternatively i would
be grateful if you could confirm you are happy for this to go ahead.
Also if you wish to Link to our site (http://www.nnfcc.co.uk)
I look forward to future contact, if you feel we are able to help in any
way in the meantime please do not hesitate to contact me.
