The Dixon Springs Agricultural Center is the southernmost agricultural research center for University of Illinois.  For almost 60 years, fruit and vegetable research and extension outreach has been conducted on-site, providing Midwest growers with a wide range of information on various topics.

Recent research includes white mold, a soil-borne fungus that can be a problem in many crop, especially tomatoes, grown in high tunnels. The site features three high tunnels, one of which is strictly used for hydroponic production.
