Title: A Joint Dissemination of an Integrated Control of Parasitic Nematodes in
Small Ruminants Raised in Small Scale Systems in Developing Countries
Abstract: This project
was being conducted
by New ERA under the LPP program and is funded by DFID. The project has
the following objectives: (1) to gather baseline information about
gastrointestinal (GI) nematode infections and their effect on the
productivity of small ruminants kept under small scale farming system; (2)
to promote among small ruminant keepers a concurrent use of three
strategies, the FAMACHA system, commercial tannin drenches or other
anti-parasitic plants and nutritional manipulation as a new approach to
the control of GI nematode infection; and (3) to determine a possible
cost-effective combination of the three strategies that will give the best
results and compare this with the standard/usual control methods.
