About Andrew Enns
Growing up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Andrew initially had little exposure to agriculture, but a general love for plants led him to pursue a degree in agriculture. He is currently working towards his bachelor’s in agriculture, majoring in agronomy at the University of Manitoba. Andrew is working in Dr. Entz’s lab studying Kernza (a perennial grain) and comparing it with common annual crops, often in one of Dr. Entz’s long-term studies. Andrew became interested in Kernza because of its current novelty and after hearing about its proposed environmental benefits. After graduating, Andrew plans on pursuing a graduate degree in agriculture. He hopes that this experience will give him positive exposure to the world of research. Outside of work, Andrew enjoys reading, playing video games and gardening.
