Dr. Martin Entz is professor of Cropping Systems and Natural Systems Agriculture at the University of Manitoba where he works on ecological and organic agriculture with specialties in crop diversity, crop-livestock interaction and farmer participatory crop variety development.
He seeks to make his research inclusive and applicable to all farms and farmers. He believes that we need to highlight and name the positive practices many farmers are already using, such as good crop rotations, reduced tillage, reduced pesticide use, and incorporating a diversity of crops and livestock on the same farm. Important influences on his career range from childhood pasture walks with his grandparents who showed him the diversity of plants, bugs, and birds on their family farm, to Dr. Wes Jackson who has dedicated his life to breeding perennial grain crops, to the many young people from around the world who come to U of M to study with him.
