The Great Experiment Conference
Please join us at The Great Experiment Conference on March 13-14, 2017, as the UT Institute of Agriculture features and celebrates the knowledge gained from over a decade of switchgrass for biofuels science. This decade of experiments was initiated by a $980,000 grant from the federal government and followed by a $70 million investment by the State of Tennessee to develop the science for a Tennessee biofuels industry.
Come see how UTIA specialists from multiple disciplines pulled together in a joint venture to help Tennesseans and the country pursue the goal of reducing dependency on foreign oil.
