The Tennessee Department of Agriculture (TDA) is requesting input on the Tennessee Agricultural Enhancement Program (TAEP) through an online survey. TAEP is transforming the state’s rural economy by helping farmers make strategic investments to increase their efficiency, safety and profitability.

With the survey responses, TDA plans to identify opportunities to improve cost-share offerings and set the program’s future strategic direction. Farmers and producers, agribusiness affiliates, extension agents, agricultural educators, industry association representatives and others are invited to participate in the survey.

The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture’s Human Dimensions Research Lab, the UT Center for Profitable Agriculture and TDA collaborated to prepare the TAEP survey. The survey is available online at and will be accessible now through March 27. It can be completed in less than 15 minutes.
