When participating in Drench Tests or other farm management practices, there are protocols that must be followed to help us provide accurate results in a safe environment. We have put together a list of appropriate guidelines to follow when participating in our programs.


To assist in the preparation of basic farm management practices, and to prepare for drench tests, we have created several checklists. Following these will hopefully help you be fully prepared and not get caught out come showtime.
