End of IPM trials

IPM trials are coming to an end and data is being gathered to establish the best IPM strategy(ies) !

Some key points indluded : 

  • A thorough wet cleaning during the empty period is essential to start a new flock with a mite population as low as possible
  • Monitoring mites is useful to detect early the rising of mite populations and decide when to treat
  • Treatments need to be applied  :
    • In the whole barn to be effective ! 
    • Not too late (before population rises too much)

More information to come in the IPM guides that are curretly being written !
