A drench is classed as ‘effective’ only when it reduces the worm egg count by 98% or more. At lower levels of efficacy, the worms on your property are drench-resistant.
Effective drenches, combination drenches and short-acting drenches are all practices which can help slow resistance.
Join us for a FREE webinar that describes how you can choose and use drenches that will limit drench resistance on your property.
WEBINAR: Choosing and Using Drenches to Limit Drench Resistance
WHEN: Tuesday, 10th September, 8 pm Eastern Standard time (Adelaide 7.30 pm, Perth 6 pm)
PRESENTER: Deb Maxwell, Executive Officer ParaBoss
What percentage of the 22 farms in Monaro and 11 in New England do YOU think had drench resistance when tested in the last 3 years as part of AWI and MLA projects?
Answer options: a) 0%, b) 17%, c) 43%, d) 72%, e) 88%, f) 100%
The extent of resistance varied across the two regions, across farms within each region, and across the worm species on that property.
Actual answer: 100%
Make an informed choice on drenches that will help you to keep your remaining drenches doing a better job for more years.
