Organic Researcher

Honoured at Organic Connections 2008

Stu Brandt initiated the Alternate Cropping System study, a long term rotation study including three organic rotations in 1994, long before studying organic systems was a safe career move.  Organic farmers were consulted on approach and methods for the organic system. Meaningful organic rotations were established, and a variety of organic techniques were incorporated in a flexible management system. Stu applied a truly innovative approach, considering organics not simply as the absence of specific treatments, but as a whole system. The ACS has helped to develop expertise in organic among the research community and provided a focal point for communication between organic farmers and researchers. He has been a valued mentor in the scientific community, and valued resource in the organic community.
