Agricultural Research Solutions.


We harness the creative energy of 130 Ph.D. faculty, specialized staff, and gifted graduate students. We make the agricultural, forest, and ornamental industries more efficient, improve the quality of rural life, and conserve soil, water, air, and wildlife. We do this with basic and applied research programs on the Institute of Agriculture campus, in partnership with UT Knoxville and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and at ten Research Centers across the state.   How can we work with you?
