  1. Vegetative growth of <em>Amaranthus hybridus</em> and <em>Amaranthus tricolor</em> under different watering regimes in different seasons in southern Mozambique

    Vegetative growth of <em>Amaranthus hybridus</em> and <em>Amaranthus tricolor</em> under different watering regimes in different seasons in southern Mozambique

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Drought-tolerant crops with high nutritional value such as amaranth leafy vegetables have the potential to improve the diet of rural communities in dry semi-arid areas of southern Mozambique. A study was conducted aiming to assess the vegetative growth and leaf...
  2. Amaranth grain production as affected by watering regimes and day length in southern Mozambique

    Amaranth grain production as affected by watering regimes and day length in southern Mozambique

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The high nutritional value of amaranth grain makes it attractive for the diet of rural people living in dry semi-arid areas of southern Mozambique. A study was implemented with Amaranthus hybridus and A. tricolor in sandy soil aiming to assess...
  3. <em>Amaranthus tricolor</em> L. leaf yields affected by salinity, harvesting stage and harvesting methods

    <em>Amaranthus tricolor</em> L. leaf yields affected by salinity, harvesting stage and harvesting methods

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Single Amaranthus tricolor seedlings were transplanted into containers filled with 5 I river sand and were fertigated with a ‘drain to waste’ system. Plants were grown in the open under warm summer conditions. Four to six daily applications of nutrient...
  4. Structural traits of elephant grass (<em>Pennisetum purpureum</em> Schum.) genotypes under rotational stocking strategies

    Structural traits of elephant grass (<em>Pennisetum purpureum</em> Schum.) genotypes under rotational stocking strategies

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Despite the forage potential of elephant grass, controlling canopy structure during grazing has limited its use in pasture. This study was conducted to determine the effect of grazing frequency and post-grazing height on canopy structural characteristics of elephant grass genotypes...
  5. Bottlenose dolphin <em>Tursiops truncatus</em> group dynamics, site fidelity, residency and movement patterns in the Madeira Archipelago (North-East Atlantic)

    Bottlenose dolphin <em>Tursiops truncatus</em> group dynamics, site fidelity, residency and movement patterns in the Madeira Archipelago (North-East Atlantic)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The bottlenose dolphin Tursiops truncatus is one of the most frequently sighted cetacean species in the Madeira Archipelago (North-East Atlantic); however, little is known about its population ecology in these waters. Photo-identification undertaken during systematic, non-systematic and opportunistic surveys conducted...
  6. Effects of urea addition on the fermentation of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) silage

    Effects of urea addition on the fermentation of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) silage

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of urea addition on fermentation characteristics, losses and chemical composition of silage of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) ‘BRS Ponta Negra’. The sorghum plant was chopped and treated with different levels of urea (0.1756,...
