Category PROJEKTY NAZV / National Agency for Agricultural Research PROJECTS
As a consequence of the African Swine Fever (ASF) occurrence in our country, we will be checking, testing and verifying technical and biological procedures in order to localize and prevent resources of the infection in free-ranging wild boar populations in Czechia. In 2021 we will release a methodology certified by the state institution. In this methodology we will summarize methods for searching the animals and their cadavers; a method for reliable estimation of the wild boar population density; detection of potential infection vectors, and results of the wide review of the scientific literature combining our results with those obtained elsewhere. The aim of the proposed project is to formulate and describe what to do if the ASF was detected in any area of the country.
