Crovect is it effective?


It's very effective at giving me a bloody headache. Don't apply it stood in the race wearing shorts...
Dad was spraying ectofly about a few weeks ago, made me feel rough for a couple of days

I used crovect a few weeks ago, and had three struck lambs 48 hrs after, but touch wood, nothing since. I used the proper method and the spray gun.

Did all our lambs with it ten days ago, had them in again a week later and one had had maggots between but not many so it must have been struck just after application and it stopped them getting hold properly.

Crovect is fine for short withdrawal and shorter cover but it's cheaper and better to apply Clik once than Crovect twice. Unless ticks or lice are a problem obviously.
we were looking for something for fly strike with a short withdrawal, we'll have a good few ready to go at weaning in a couple of weeks time. We really should have done them with clik long ago but it didn't happen, I noticed a lamb struck on Sunday so action needed to be taken. My father returned from the vets with crovect, this led to the question since we'd never used it before.

Early moves to target wild oats

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
