Brooksville Plant Materials Center

The Brooksville Plant Materials Center (PMC), along with the plant materials centers in Georgia and Mississippi serve the southeastern United States and the Caribbean Area. The Center began in the 1940's as a seed and plant production nursery located north of Brooksville, Florida. In 1957, the center moved to Arcadia, Florida only to return to Brooksville in 1966 as a Plant Materials Center.

Climatic conditions within the service area vary from temperate to tropical. Soil textures are predominantly loamy to sandy and well drained, but areas of clay and poorly drained soils are common. Plant communities are varied and complex. Major land uses include row crop and vegetable production, rangelands and pastures, citrus groves and orchards, forestland, recreation, and urban land. Major conservation concerns include soil health, clean water, cropland and coastal erosion, and man-made disturbances. The Center develops new plants and technologies to improve croplands and rangelands, restore plant populations, and improve wildlife habitat and water quality.

The Brooksville Plant Materials Center developed 15 improved conservation plants, including five legumes and forbs and ten grasses.
