    Growth, phenological and yield responses of a bambara groundnut (<em>Vigna subterranea</em> (L.) Verdc.) landrace to imposed water stress under field conditions

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdc.) is an underutilised species with potential to contribute nutritional and food security in marginal areas. Growth, phenology and yield of a local bambara groundnut landrace from Jozini, KwaZulu-Natal, characterised into three selections according to...
  2. Effects of short-term water deficit stress on physiological characteristics of Bambara groundnut (<em>Vigna subterranea</em> (L.) Verdc.)

    Effects of short-term water deficit stress on physiological characteristics of Bambara groundnut (<em>Vigna subterranea</em> (L.) Verdc.)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdc.) is an annual leguminous food crop native to Africa. The crop is grown in marginal soils and it is considered to be a drought-resistant species. However, there is limited information on the ways Bambara...
  3. Effect of soluble dietary fibres from Bambara groundnut varieties on the stability of orange oil beverage emulsion

    Effect of soluble dietary fibres from Bambara groundnut varieties on the stability of orange oil beverage emulsion

    Soluble dietary fibres (SDFs) [30% (w/w)] from four varieties of Bambara groundnut (BGN), viz. black-eye, brown-eye, brown and red were used to stabilize orange oil beverage emulsions at 6% (w/w) orange oil. Emulsion stability was studied using Turbiscan MA 2000...
  4. Consumer awareness and acceptability of bambara groundnut as a protein source for use in complementary foods in rural KwaZulu-Natal

    Consumer awareness and acceptability of bambara groundnut as a protein source for use in complementary foods in rural KwaZulu-Natal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Clinical Nutrition
    Objectives: To determine the consumer awareness and acceptability of bambara groundnut as a protein source and to assess its potential for use in complementary feeding.
  5. Criteria for selecting groundout varieties in breeding for resistance to rosette disease

    Criteria for selecting groundout varieties in breeding for resistance to rosette disease

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Short-duration groundnut cultivars were screened under high, medium and low rosette disease pressures and evaluated for rosette disease incidence, presence of groundnut rosette assister virus and other agronomic characteristics. Heritabili- ties of these characteristics and interaction plus variance components across...
  6. Effects of plant population density and cultivar on growth, yield and yield components in groundnut (<em>Arachis hypogaea</em> 1.)

    Effects of plant population density and cultivar on growth, yield and yield components in groundnut (<em>Arachis hypogaea</em> 1.)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    An experiment was conducted at the University of Queensland Redland bay Farm (27°37′ S, 153°17′ E) in southeast Queensland, Australia to study response of groundnut cultivars [Improved Virginia Bunch, NC-7, Q18801 (Virginia types), TMV-2, McCubbin and Red Spanish (Spanish types)]...
  7. Somatic embryogenesis of groundnut (<em>Arachis hypogaea</em> L.): A comparison of four South African genotypes

    Somatic embryogenesis of groundnut (<em>Arachis hypogaea</em> L.): A comparison of four South African genotypes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Genetic engineering is an important tool which can be used together with conventional breeding methods in transferring certain economically important traits into cultivated varieties of almost any crop species. One of the methods for gene transfer is the particle bombardment...
  8. Effect of annual legumes on soil nitrogen and on the subsequent yield of maize and grain sorghum

    Effect of annual legumes on soil nitrogen and on the subsequent yield of maize and grain sorghum

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The objective of this study was to quantify the nitrogen and yield advantage of cowpea, soybean and groundnuts to succeeding maize and grain sorghum crops. Treatments at six localities consisted of a crop rotation with annual legumes and maize or...
  9. Resistance in new groundnut breeding lines to black pod rot caused by <em>Chalara elegans</em>

    Resistance in new groundnut breeding lines to black pod rot caused by <em>Chalara elegans</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Black pod rot or black hull of groundnut caused by the fungus Chalara elegans results in severe damage to groundnut pods and kernels in South Africa. The disease is managed most effectively by planting resistant varieties. The commercial varieties currently...
