  1. Maize as a cover crop for the establishment of perennial pasture legumes in the south‐eastern transvaal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    In exploratory trials involving the underplanting of the perennial pasture legumes Coronilla varia, Lotus corniculatus and Medicago sativa in maize, the influence of maize density, time of planting of the legume and time of maize removal on legume establishment was...
  2. Response of subterranean clover to liming and phosphate fertilization on a low potassium soil

    Response of subterranean clover to liming and phosphate fertilization on a low potassium soil

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Several Trifolium varieties grown in an acid Bokkeveld shale soil responded positively to small additions of lime and P. Growth was probably limited by a K deficiency, and it is unlikely that Trifolium species could be successfully grown as cover...
  3. Biomass production, weed suppression, nitrogen and phosphorus uptake in white oat (<em>Avena sativa</em> L.) and grazing vetch (<em>Vicia dasycarpa</em> L.) cover crop bicultures under an irrigated no-till system

    Biomass production, weed suppression, nitrogen and phosphorus uptake in white oat (<em>Avena sativa</em> L.) and grazing vetch (<em>Vicia dasycarpa</em> L.) cover crop bicultures under an irrigated no-till system

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Cultivation of a multipurpose cover crop is of interest to Eastern Cape farmers experiencing soil infertility and weed pressures. The objective of the study was to investigate effects of oat–vetch bicultures on biomass production, weed suppression, and nitrogen (N) and...
  4. Performance of <em>Eucalyptus dunnii</em> as influenced by vegetation control when felled at nine years in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Performance of <em>Eucalyptus dunnii</em> as influenced by vegetation control when felled at nine years in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    In 1997, a trial was initiated to determine the impact of eight vegetation control treatments on the growth of Eucalyptus dunnii Maiden at a warm-temperate site in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, South Africa. The treatments included a Weedy and Weed-free check,...
  5. Evidence of Induced Nutrient Deficiency in Pine Plantings on Previously Cropped Lands

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Widespread establishment failures of Pinus species have recently occurred on agricultural land acquired for commercial forestry in South Africa. These include about 10 000 ha of previously tilled soils in the north-eastern Cape belonging to Mondi Forests. A lettuce (Lactuca...
  6. Grond‐ en afloopverlies bepalings vanaf natuurlike veld, met behulp van ‘n reënvalnabootser

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    ‘n Oorhoofse roterende reënvalnabootser is gebruik om die sediment‐ en afloopverliese vanaf natuurlike veld in verskillende suksessiestadia en teen verskillende hellings te bepaal.
  7. Grazing of <em>raphanus sativus</em>. L (Japanese Radish)<sup>1</sup>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The performance of young woolled sheep was markedly better when grazing Japanese radish early in winter, when more leaf was available .Continuous grazing resulted in better performance than rotational or zero grazing.
  8. Afloopstudies vanaf natuurlike veld in verskillende suksessiestadia van die sentrale oranje‐vrystaat

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Afloopbane met ‘n helling van 4,13% is gebruik om die afloopverliese, fitomassaproduksie en waterverbruiksdoel‐treffendheid (WVD: Bogrondse fitomassa geproduseer in verhouding tot die evapotranspirasieverliese), van natuurlike veld in verskillende suksessiestadia vir die periode Julie 1977 tot Junie 1983 te monitor.
  9. Toepassíng van ‘n gronderosievergelyking op natuurlike veld van die sentrale oranje‐vrystaat

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    ‘n Oorhoofse roterende rcënvalnabootscr is gebruik orn numericse waardes vir sekere faktore van die universele gronderosi‐evcrgelyking vas te stel. Alhocwei dit tydens hierdie Studie nodig was om sekere belangrike aannames te maak, het die afgeleide data betekenisvol ooreengestem met die...
  10. Die wiskundige simulering van koolhidraattranslokasie in natuurlike grasveld<sup>1</sup>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Die groeifunksies benodig vir die simulasie van produksie van ‘n Themeda triandra‐grasveld met behulp van die PUTU 11 simulasiemodel is ontwikkel. Vir die ontwikkeling van die model is die veldproduksiedata van die 1980/81 groeiseisoen gebruik waarna dit suksesvol, vir drie...
