    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Accounting Research
    Public sectors all over the world face challenges and, thus far, public sector reforms have not been very successful. The public sector, as a key component of any economy, needs to address its challenges adequately to prevent economic growth and...
  2. Evaluation of natural pastures : Quantitative criteria for assessing condition in the <em>themeda</em> veld of the orange free state

    Evaluation of natural pastures : Quantitative criteria for assessing condition in the <em>themeda</em> veld of the orange free state

    There is a need for objective standards of veld condition assessment in South Africa. The alternative practical criteria of condition are examined and their field application is evaluated. Examples of quality, productivity and acceptability ratings are quoted from local research...
  3. A comparative study of three veld types of the Northern Cape: Species evaluation and yield<sup>1</sup>

    A comparative study of three veld types of the Northern Cape: Species evaluation and yield<sup>1</sup>

    A comparative study was undertaken of the grass component of the three main veld types of the Vryburg district; namely Sand veld, Dolomite veld and Lime veld. Results indicate that different species within the same veld type and the same...
  4. Influence of stocking rate and grazing systems on available grazing in the northern cape<sup>1</sup>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The influence of rotational and continuous grazing systems, each applied with four stocking rates, on the above‐ground phytomass of veld was determined over four years.
  5. Evaluation of the grazing potential of grass species in <em>Tarchonanthus</em> veld of the northern cape<sup>1</sup>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The grazing value of the seven most prominent grass species in Tarchonanthus‐limeveld was investigated from 1977 to 1981.
  6. The production, digestibility and chemical composition of five ecotypes of <em>Anthephora pubescens</em> Nees on three soil types

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Production, digestibility of OM and chemical composition of five promising Anthephora pubescens Nees ecotypes (VH4, VH7, VH9, VH17 and VH20) at two fertiliser levels were compared on a soil of the Mangano, Annandale and Sunbury series.
  7. Influence of stocking rate and grazing system on plant basal cover and botanical composition of veld in the northern cape<sup>1</sup>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Changes in basal cover and botanical composition were recorded at four stocking rates, both under continuous and rotational grazing in the Northern Cape. The experiment was conducted with cattle. Results suggested that heavier stocking rates could be applied under rotational...
  8. The influence of stocking rate and grazing system on the crude protein content and digestibility of <em>Tarchonanthus</em> veld in the northern cape<sup>1</sup>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Four stocking rates (10, 7, 6 and 4 ha/large stock unit), in both rotational and continuous grazing, have been applied with cattle on Tarchonanthus veld. The crude protein content and digestibility of organic matter of handcut samples and herbage samples...
  9. Herbage intake by cattle on <em>tarchonanthus</em> veld in the Northern Cape as affected by stocking rate and grazing system<sup>1</sup>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    In a trial with young Bonsmara cattle, four different stocking rates (10, 7, 6 and 4 ha/large stock unit) were applied in both a rotational and continuous grazing system. Feed intake was estimated during spring, summer, autumn and winter for...
  10. Veldtoestand en neiging in Kalahari‐duineveld onder ‘n ekstensiewe veeboerderystelsel

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Plantopnames is gedurende 1970 tot 1985 in die Kalahari‐duineveld (Acocks, 1975; Veldtipe no. 16a4) op die proefboerdery‐eenheid Massakloutjie in Noordwes‐Kaapland onderneem. Reënval het gedurende die proefperiode gewissel tussen 111 mm (1982–83) en 593 mm (1973–74). Die totale basale plantebedekking het...
