  1. Genetic diversity of <em>Amaranthus</em> species in South Africa

    Genetic diversity of <em>Amaranthus</em> species in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Amaranthus species plays an important role in sustaining food security and alleviation of malnutrition in South Africa. A number of Amaranthus genotypes have been collected and conserved in the gene bank of the ARC–Roodeplaat Vegetable and Ornamental Plant Institute, South...
  2. Genetic variability in cowpea (<em>Vigna unguiculata</em> (L.) Walp.) genotypes

    Genetic variability in cowpea (<em>Vigna unguiculata</em> (L.) Walp.) genotypes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Information on genetic variability among the existing cowpea genotypes will increase the efficiency of the cowpea improvement. Field experiments were conducted at the Agricultural Research Council–Roodeplaat Vegetable and Ornamental Plant Institute in South Africa, in 2011 and 2012, to estimate...
  3. Preliminary evaluation of seed and germination traits in cowpea (<em>Vigna unguiculata</em>) genotypes

    Preliminary evaluation of seed and germination traits in cowpea (<em>Vigna unguiculata</em>) genotypes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Cowpea is a valuable crop for subsistence farmers in South Africa. Seed quantitative traits and germination parameters are important for good establishment of the crop, therefore the variation for these traits were determined for 44 cowpea genotypes. A field experiment...
