The Monroeville Agricultural Research Unit (formerly known as the Monroeville Experiment Field) was established by 1930 and administered by the Department of Agronomy and Soils until the mid-1960s. The unit has largely been devoted to research on agromonic crops. In spring of 2002, the entire unit was planted into longleaf pine seedlings with all 80 acres in research plots.
The Monroeville Experiment Field was one of ten experiment fields established and in operation by 1930 on tracts ranging from 33 to 60 acres in size. Of these ten, three remain in service today: Brewton Experiment Field, Monroeville Experiment Field and Prattville Experiment Field.
