  1. Silviculture and Genetics of <em>Pinus kesiya</em> for Planting Degraded Pasture Land

    Silviculture and Genetics of <em>Pinus kesiya</em> for Planting Degraded Pasture Land

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    The conifer species, Pinus kesiya Royle ex Gordon, is an important part of the ecology within the indigenous range of South-east Asia as well as in sustainably managed plantations in a number of countries. Planting with the species in Colombia...
  2. Comparison of soil properties under tropical <em>Acacia</em> hybrid plantation and shifting cultivation land use in northern Vietnam

    Comparison of soil properties under tropical <em>Acacia</em> hybrid plantation and shifting cultivation land use in northern Vietnam

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Despite the common use of Acacia species in Vietnam, few studies have examined changes to total soil nitrogen (TN) and total soil carbon (TC) following the planting of Acacia mangium × Acacia auriculiformis (Acacia hybrid) plantations (AH) on formerly eroded...
  3. Evaluating Forestry Land During Inflationary Times

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The Land Expectation Value criterion has been used since 1849 to calculate the value of forestry land. It was, however, developed in a static financial environment, and is no longer suitable for land valuation in today's dynamic financial environment. This...
  4. Comparison of <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em> Provenances and Seed Orchards in a Frost Frequent Environment

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    An international provenance trial of Eucalyptus grandis was established in southern Florida in 1980 and measured for growth and frost-tolerance through 8,8 years. The trial compared 20 Australian provenances 1) among themselves and 2) with seed orchard stock from Florida...
  5. The Changing Landscape—is there Room for Forestry in the New South Africa?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    South Africa is going through a period of radical change, and traditionally disadvantaged people are expecting access to resources and opportunities that have thus far been denied them.
  6. Land Valuation with a Limited Planning Horizon

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The forestry industry in South Africa operates within a dynamic environment. Rotations are relatively short, land use conversion takes place regularly and company ownership changes frequently. Foresters in the private sector are therefore reluctant to use Land Expectation Value with...
  7. A comparison of highveld fodders and fodder flows for growing out long yearling steers

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    A fodder flow/animal experiment 40,8 ha in extent (7,5 ha irrigated), with 19 paddocks, was carried out over a two and a half year period.
  8. Conservative stocking or maximum profit: A grazing management dilemma?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Swards in the False Thornveld of the Eastern Cape are generally stocked considerably in excess of the rate currently recommended for maximised production on a sustained basis. Economic analysis of the relationship between stocking rate and production per ha reveals...
  9. Pasture‐use patterns on dairy and beef farms in the natal midlands

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Pasture sites for each of the species grown are classified for both dryland and irrigated pastures in the Natal Midlands. Only six species viz. kikuyu, Italian ryegrass, Eragrostis curvula, Festuca arundinacea (tall fescue), Dactylis glomerata (cocksfoot) and Trifolium repens (white...
  10. The development of veld assessment in the northern Transvaal savanna I. Red Turfveld

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Grazing‐induced gradients in pasture species composition were characterized for the red turfveld of the Northern Transvaal savanna. A proposed classification of pasture species response to grazing was developed and the influence of state variables and driving forces other than grazing...
