Spore counts have been found. Is your Facial Eczema Plan sorted?

December 14, 2018

In light of the recent weather conditions, we decided to kick off our spore count monitoring earlier this season. The latest samples taken this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have spores counts now at 5000 spores/gram.

While this is low, it indicates the Facial Eczema season is now underway and it is time to act. If current ‘tropical’ weather conditions continue, we predict spore numbers to increase rapidly.

We recommend priming the troughs now if your Facial Eczema Prevention Plan includes adding zinc to the water supply.

Remember to see us first for competitive prices on all your zinc requirements this season.

Phone Abby and Gavin in our Retail Team on 07 888 8197 to pre-order your zinc boluses now.
