Established in 1932, the Research & Education Center at Greeneville is known for its research on burley tobacco production and beef cow/calf production. Research is conducted on the 500 acres that make up the center. Areas of research at the center include all aspects of burley tobacco production with emphasis on breeding and production economics, variety testing, pest management, and breeding of field crops important to the agriculture of Upper East Tennessee; and animal research in the areas of genetics, silage feeding, and grazing studies with endophyte-free fescue.

Our Mission

The Research & Education Center at Greeneville works to improve the net return to Tennessee tobacco growers and to other Tennesseans whose work and livelihood are tied to agriculture and natural resources.

Thank you for your interest in the Center. We encourage you to explore our Web site, join us for a field day, or contact us if you have questions or would like to arrange a visit.
