UT Vegetable Production

Welcome to the University of Tennessee Vegetable Extension program website! Here you will find grower resources, supply sources for everything from seeds to farm equipment, and food safety information. Feel free to look through our links or contact us with any additional questions regarding the extension program.

The Vegetable Extension program focuses on providing innovations in production practices, aiding in cultivar selection, developing alternative crops, maximizing crop nutrition and flavor, and reducing the use of off-farm inputs, such as chemical fertilizers and pesticides, for Tennessee growers through research and education throughout the state.
