Abstract: Temperature and moisture are important variables controlling development of gastrointestinal nematode eggs to the infective larval stage (L3). Moisture effects development through rainfall amount and timing, but soil moisture may also be important. Larval development occurs within the faecal pellet and effects of moisture must occur through faecal moisture content (FMC). An experiment was conducted in a temperature-controlled incubator to determine the effect of soil moisture content and water application timing and amount on FMC.
