  1. The same, yet different: re-encoding identity in <em>U-Carmen eKhayelitsha</em>

    The same, yet different: re-encoding identity in <em>U-Carmen eKhayelitsha</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Musical Arts in Africa
    This article explores the reconceptualisation of the opera Carmen as a cinematic adaptation of George Bizet’s eponymous opera (1873–1874), situated within an African context. The change in culture and context affects the interpretation of the character Carmen, who emerges as...
  2. Leaf water retention of excised leaves as a measure of drought resistance in grain sorghum (<em>Sorghum bicolor</em> L. Moench) genotypes

    Leaf water retention of excised leaves as a measure of drought resistance in grain sorghum (<em>Sorghum bicolor</em> L. Moench) genotypes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The objective of these experiments was to evaluate the usefulness of the excised leaf water retention capability (ELWRC) technique for screening grain sorghum genotypes for drought resistance. Seven genotypes were planted in a randomized block consisting of four replications. The...
  3. Allocation of resources in sorghum (<em>Sorghum bicolor</em> L. Moench) yield trials

    Allocation of resources in sorghum (<em>Sorghum bicolor</em> L. Moench) yield trials

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Three replications of twenty-two grain sorghum genotypes were planted in a randomized block design. Plots consisted of three rows. Yield records were taken from eight single plants as well as from 2-m samples of each row. The components of variation...
  4. Changes in percentage moisture loss of excised leaves of seven field-grown grain sorghum genotypes

    Changes in percentage moisture loss of excised leaves of seven field-grown grain sorghum genotypes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The objectives of these experiments were to study the seasonal and diurnal changes in percentage moisture loss (PML) and correlated characteristics of excised leaves. Seven grain sorghum genotypes were planted in a randomized block design and their PML and the...
  5. The inheritance of percentage moisture loss in sorghum leaves

    The inheritance of percentage moisture loss in sorghum leaves

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The inheritance of drought resistance and agronomic characteristics of field-grown sorghum plants was determined. High heritabilities were recorded for each characteristic. The genetic differences of percentage moisture loss were due to genes exhibiting incomplete dominance. The agronomic characteristics of plant...
  6. Relationships between yield, base temperature and drought resistance in grain sorghum

    Relationships between yield, base temperature and drought resistance in grain sorghum

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The object of this study was to investigate the interrelationship between yield, its components, base temperature and drought resistance of grain sorghum. Seven commercial cultivars and 27 F1 progenies were compared in two separate randomized block trials. A total of...
  7. The inheritance of base temperature in grain sorghum

    The inheritance of base temperature in grain sorghum

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Two different methods were used to identify the genetic determinants of the base temperatures of sorghum seeds which were germinated at 15°C. These were a factorial mating design and a crossing system to identify lines which contain the greatest number...
  8. The inheritance of drought resistance characteristics in grain sorghum seedlings

    The inheritance of drought resistance characteristics in grain sorghum seedlings

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A factorial crossing method was used to study the inheritance of and the relationship between characteristics which are related to drought resistance in grain sorghum seedlings. The potential for improving drought resistance in grain sorghum seedlings was verified by the...
  9. The inheritance of seedling growth rate in grain sorghum

    The inheritance of seedling growth rate in grain sorghum

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The inheritance of growth rate in grain sorghum seedlings was studied in two factorial crossing systems. The presence of both additive and dominance genetic variation was indicated. The additive gene effects played a greater role. At least three genetic factors...
