Tennessee is home to a vibrant and growing nursery industry. Many of the trees and shrubs planted in the Eastern half of the United States originate from commercial nurseries located in Tennessee.
The Tennessee State University Otis L. Floyd Nursery Research Center is located in the heart of Tennessee's nursery industry, about 80 miles southeast of Nashville in McMinnville, Tennessee.
Our mission is to provide leadership in strengthening and expansion of our nursery industry through innovative research and extension programs in entomology, genetics, horticulture, pathology, chemical ecology and related sciences.
