Duddingtonia flagrans (abbreviated to D. flagrans) is a natural strain of fungus isolated from the environment and found around the world.
Duddingtonia flagrans reduces the number of gastrointestinal nematodes (GIN) larvae on pasture, which is significantly greater than a chemical wormer can do. (overall reduction averages below):
The advent of a non-chemical biological control of parasites in grazing animals ushers in a fundamentally different approach to the production of livestock worldwide. We'll keep you informed.
Duddingtonia flagrans is a nematophagous fungus, the term nematophagous is Greek meaning "worm-eating".
Use of D. flagrans did not have any effect on soil nematodes, earthworms, soil arthropods, soil bacteria and fungi.
It has been estimated 10% of the parasite population is within the host animal vs 90% is on the pasture.
We endeavour to keep you informed of all the latest information regarding developments in the effective use of Duddingtonia flagrans and it's efficacy in the treatment of parasites in grazing animals
