Summary

In recent years, a number of reports have been published on current practices for helminth control in the EU, but none in organic ruminants. As conventional and organic farms differ in their helminth control strategies, it is essential to record the current control practices for organic farms across EU, identify obstacles that hamper the implementation of innovations and determine farmers’ disposition towards such innovations to facilitate the implementation of appropriate innovations.
Within the PrOPara project WP 4.1 was addressing the status quo of nematode control in organic ruminant farms across Europe. This did not only include the helminth management strategies, which are currently implemented, but also farmers’ perception towards nematode control innovations.
This report delivers the detailed results obtained by the surveys.
