In May and June 1979, we visited several locations in the Soviet Union where range research was being conducted. We were members of the "Arid Pastures and Rangelands Team" formed in conjunction with the US-USSR Agreement on Agriculture and Technology. The purpose of this exchange of rangelands teams was to increase cooperation in agricultural research and technological development tt1rough: (1) visiting selected USSR locations to review research on breeding, production, and utilization of forage produced from arid pastures and rangelands, and to exam me the processes that tend to increase or decrease grazing land productivity: (2) discussing problems of mutual interest witl1 scientists and practitioners within the USSR; and (3) developing specific cooperation exchanges and research activities for the mutual benefit of both countries. We visited locations in Moscow, Leningrad, and Stavropol in the Republic of Russia; Tselinograd, Alma-Ata, and Chimkent in the Republic of Kazakhstan; Samarkand in the Republic of Uzbekistan; and Ashkhabad in the Republic of Turkmenia.
