Introduction

Dr. Doug Wilcox is a professional agronomist responsible for crop insurance program development and agronomy related research for Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC) based out of Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, Canada.

Doug has helped MASC grow from a company which insured 36 crops for $600 million in crop coverage when he started, into one which currently insures 60 crops and provides over $1.7 billion dollars in crop coverage.

Doug has also helped make MASC a leader in using crop insurance information for outreach purposes. For over 20 years he has been analyzing and publishing relevant analysis of the crop insurance data for agronomy outreach and benchmarking purposes.

In addition to his extensive crop insurance experience Doug has worked as researcher for the University of Manitoba and Manitoba Sugar and has had overseas experience working for CIDA in Kenya and as a consultant in the Ukraine.

Doug lives on an acreage south of  Portage La Prairie with his wife and two boys where he enjoys gardening, cycling and photography.
