TSU Nursery Research
Located at the Otis L. Floyd Nursery Research Center (approx. 80 miles southeast of Nashville on the edge of the Cumberland Plateau) I work in a research facility dedicated to the improvement of the Tennessee nursery crop industry. It is operated through a cooperative effort between Tennessee State University and the United States Department of Agriculture/Agricultural Research Service.
We work to provide education and assistance to the wholesale nursery producers in middle Tennessee (Warren, Coffee, DeKalb, Franklin, Grundy, and Van Buren Counties). We also provide:
- educational programs,
- group meetings,
- farm visits,
- and media updates.
