Middle Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center at Spring Hill

The Middle Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center conducts both research and demonstration trials that provide solutions and education to our community, state, and nation’s agricultural producers and the many non-agricultural producing public that rely on our industry for a safe and economical food supply, fiber, and more.

This Middle Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center is located in beautiful Spring Hill, Tennessee, and maintains a diversity of resources and opportunities for UTIA researchers and educators. The Center enjoys the presence and a cooperative working relationship with a number of different departments and faculty at the University of Tennessee.
