Abstract

Biological control through the use of nematophagous fungi is a sustainable alternative for combatting helminthes in domestic animals and allows a reduction in the use of anthelmintics. The objective of this research was to evaluate the efficacy of the Arthrobotrys cladodes var macroides fungus in a ...

AbstractFull Text

In Andradina, São Paulo state, the degree of resistance against endo- and ectoparasites was evaluated in heifers from three genetic groups: crossbred Nellore x Aberdeen Angus (Nel x AAn; n=12), Guzerá (Guz; n=22) and Nellore (Nel; n=24). During 12 months, the body weight of each animal was recorded ...

Abstract

This study compared the coadministration among the three nematode predatory fungi, Duddingtonia flagrans, Monacrosporium thaumasium, and Arthrobotrys robusta, in the biological control of cattle gastrointestinal nematodiasis in comparison with the use of the fungus D. flagrans alone. Five groups...
