Project RELACS – Improving inputs for organic farming. Organic sheep producers are aware that worm control issues continue to pose a threat to their business. To a large extent, they still have to rely on dewormers to maintain the health and productivity of their animals.
Research on alternative strategies for worm control can now be put into practice. These strategies have been developed independently of each other, but we now bring them together in a “basket of options” approach.
The basket of options is not a “one size fits all” approach. It gives farmers the option to select what is best for their circumstances increasing the chances of keeping treatment frequency as low as possible and maintaining drench efficacy as high as possible.
