Tennessee Master Nursery Producer Program
Revised July 2015
Welcome to the Tennessee Master Nursery Producer (TMNP) Program website!
The Tennessee Master Nursery Program (TMNP) is a professional development program for nursery crops producers. It was designed to provide Tennessee nursery producers with the best information possible in order to enhance their profitability and long-term environmental, economic, and community sustainability. The curriculum was developed by the Tennessee Master Nursery Committee under the leadership of the University of Tennessee with representatives from Tennessee State University and the United States Department of Agriculture. The inaugural class was held in fall of 2012 with 45 growers graduating in January 2013.
