Description:

The Clarksville Research Center (CRC) hosts research on small fruits and tree fruits as well as potatoes, chestnuts and a variety of other crops. Research at the 440-acre site includes variety development, fruit thinning and growth regulators, dwarf rootstocks for fruit trees, integrated pest management, organic production systems and new pruning practices to help make production more profitable, efficient and environmentally friendly. CRC is a valuable site for inoculated potato late blight field trials because of its isolation from potato-growing areas.
