The titles and abstracts of the papers presented at this meeting describe the application of nuclear magnetic resonance to research of importance in the agricultural/food processing industries. For the most part these papers have described the use of sophisticated, complex and expensive spectrometers in these studies. The complexity of these techniques makes it difficult for the average worker in the agricultural/food processing industry to apply nuclear magnetic resonance without the assistance of an expert trained in the field. The cost of this type of NMR equipment makes some sort of a central corporate facility imperative. These conditions tend to isolate the agricultural/food processing chemist from the application of NMR techniques to his or her routine problems.
