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 researchers are conducting a range of forage variety testing, including red clover, orchard grass, and cool-season annual grasses.
