The UTIA research mission is to provide science-based answers and solutions to challenges facing the agriculture, food and natural resource industries in Tennessee and beyond. Research results are presented for review, comment and evaluation at scientific, professional meetings. Peer-review utilized by refereed journals provides a high level of scientific credibility to the soundness of research results. Research results are then transferred to the end user through UT Extension or are protected through various intellectual property methods. Grants and contracts leverage appropriated state and federal funding, with awards representing a peer recognition of the quality of the science proposed. Increasing grant and contract expenditures suggest that increasing research is being conducted, which should lead to more answers and solutions being developed for our clientele.
