Ep. 67 Blake Brown, Educating West Tennessee and Beyond About Agriculture

As the director of the University of Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center at Milan, Blake Brown experiences firsthand the innovation that comes as a result of agriculture research. Since opening in 1962, thousands of projects have taken place on crops including  corn, cotton, soybeans, grain-sorghum, wheat and more. In this episode, Brown shares a little of what is happening at the center today along with the story of its founder, Tom McCutchen, who is known as “the father of Tennessee no-till.” McCutchen’s story is included in Discovery Park’s exhibit on innovation in agriculture that opens Dec. 5, 2020.
