    Retrospective clinical analysis of adverse drug reactions associated with antiretroviral therapy in Tlokwe district, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Family Practice
    Background: South Africa has the highest number of patients on antiretroviral therapy (ART) globally. Various obstacles were identified that influence effective reporting of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) in resource-limited countries. This investigation aimed to identify, classify and analyse the prevalence...
  2. Osmoconditioning of seeds of sweet pepper (<em>Capsicum annuum</em> L.)

    Osmoconditioning of seeds of sweet pepper (<em>Capsicum annuum</em> L.)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Germination rate of seeds of sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) cv. Florida Resistant Giant was increased significantly at both 15 °C and 25 °C after osmotic priming for 10 days at 15 °C in solutions of polyethylene glycol. Post-treatment drying...
  3. Germination rate of maize (<em>Zea mays</em> L.) kernels. I. Relationships with kernel properties and water uptake

    Germination rate of maize (<em>Zea mays</em> L.) kernels. I. Relationships with kernel properties and water uptake

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Relationships were sought between germination rate and various kernel variables of 12 freshly harvested, undeteriorated seed lots of maize. Germination rate was positively correlated with water content of kernels at all sampling times up to 30 h of incubation and...
  4. Germination rate of maize (<em>Zea mays</em> L.) kernels. II. Relationships with respiration rate and adenosine triphosphate content

    Germination rate of maize (<em>Zea mays</em> L.) kernels. II. Relationships with respiration rate and adenosine triphosphate content

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Germination rate of freshly harvested, undeteriorated seed lots of maize was found to be positively correlated with rate of oxygen uptake of kernels and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) content of embryos, at 6 and 12 h of incubation. Respiration rate was...
