  1. Improving the fermentation ability of unripe air-cured tobacco

    Improving the fermentation ability of unripe air-cured tobacco

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The fermentation of dark air-cured tobacco depends on its fermentation ability. Dry spells during the growth period can contribute towards unripe tobacco with poor fermentation ability. By blending such tobacco at a 1:1 ratio with tobacco of good fermentation ability,...
  2. Factors affecting theaflavin values of black tea in South Africa: A preliminary analysis

    Factors affecting theaflavin values of black tea in South Africa: A preliminary analysis

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The highest theaflavin (TF) contents associated with five tea clones grown in the Eastern Transvaal were encountered in the manufactured tea from ‘MT 12’ followed by ‘SFS 204’, with ‘Veld 35’ and ‘Veld 43’ having the lowest values. TF contents...
  3. Chemical composition and <em>in vitro</em> dry matter digestibility of various utilization forms of grain sorghum residues

    Chemical composition and <em>in vitro</em> dry matter digestibility of various utilization forms of grain sorghum residues

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The chemical composition and in vitro dry matter digestibility (IVDMD) of various utilization forms of grain sorghum residues were investigated. Two grain sorghum cultivars, SNK 3640 (bitter tasting) and Pioneer 8564 (sweet tasting), were used. Each taste type was grown...
  4. Research note: The effect of a lactic acid bacterial inoculant on the fermentation dynamics of <em>Eragrostis curvula</em> during ensiling

    Research note: The effect of a lactic acid bacterial inoculant on the fermentation dynamics of <em>Eragrostis curvula</em> during ensiling

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Making good quality hay from Eragrostis curvula is a risky operation in many areas in South Africa due mainly to unfavourable weather conditions. Ensiling should therefore be considered as an alternative method for conserving the forage. The aim of this...
  5. Influence of molasses additive and moisture level at ensiling on fermentative characteristics of <em>Panicum maximum</em>

    Influence of molasses additive and moisture level at ensiling on fermentative characteristics of <em>Panicum maximum</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Silages made from directly cut or wilted Panicum maximum treated with or without molasses, were evaluated to determine fermentative characteristics. The grass was harvested at the boot stage of growth and the material of each treatment was ensiled in separate...
  6. Gastrointestinal protozoa and digestive tract parameters of wild South African warthogs (<em>Phacochoerus aethiopicus</em>)

    Gastrointestinal protozoa and digestive tract parameters of wild South African warthogs (<em>Phacochoerus aethiopicus</em>)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The warthog (Phacochoerus aethiopicus) is a grazer and hindgut fermenter with an apparent unique population of protozoa; however, only a limited number of specimens have been studied to date. In addition to having a very low number of protozoal species,...
  7. <i>Umami</i> in wine

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal:
    The positive effects of umami on flavour are widely documented, but as far as the author is aware, wines are not mentioned in umami-related literature; vice versa, in wine-related scientific publications, references to umami were not found. In the fermentation...
  8. <em>Umami</em> in wine

    <em>Umami</em> in wine

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Research in Hospitality Management
    The positive effects of umami on flavour are widely documented, but as far as the author is aware, wines are not mentioned in umami-related literature; vice versa, in wine-related scientific publications, references to umami were not found. In the fermentation...
  9. Effects of urea addition on the fermentation of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) silage

    Effects of urea addition on the fermentation of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) silage

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of urea addition on fermentation characteristics, losses and chemical composition of silage of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) ‘BRS Ponta Negra’. The sorghum plant was chopped and treated with different levels of urea (0.1756,...
