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 AgResearch Centers across the state.
We harness the creative energy of 650 PhD faculty, specialized staff, and gifted graduate students.
AgResearch Faculty and Staff Were Among Others Honored at the 2022 UTIA Awards and Promotions Ceremony
Our recent partnership serves as a clearinghouse for transformational discoveries that aim to improve animal, human, plant, and environment health.
