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.

Summary translation

Der Optionskorb ist keine Einheitslösung für alle. Er gibt den Landwirt*innen die Möglichkeit, das auszuwählen, was für ihre Verhältnisse am besten geeignet ist, und erhöht so die Chancen, die Behandlungshäufigkeit so gering wie möglich zu halten und die Wirksamkeit so hoch wie möglich zu halten.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:This tool offers different actions for controling worms in organic sheep production.
What problem does the tool address?: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.
What solution does the tool offer?: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.
