    Love matters: exploring conceptions of love in Rwanda and Swaziland and relationship to HIV and intimate partner violence

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    Health risks such as intimate partner violence (IPV) and HIV infection often occur within intimate sexual relationships, yet the study of love and intimacy is largely absent from health research on African populations. This study explores how women and men...
  2. The Application of Inorganic Fertilisers to Conditioned <em>Pinus radiata</em> Prior to Lifting as a Means of Improving Root Growth Capacity

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    A modified root growth capacity technique was used to evaluate the effect of the application of different types and quantities of fertilisers on the root growth capacity (RGC) of conditioned Pinus radiata seedlings. The experiment indicates that 0,05 g N...
  3. The Impact of Harvesting Operations on Timber Quality: Causes and Remedies

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Forests are devastated daily to satisfy the world's timber demands. Tropical forests throughout the world are exploited and endangered. An obligation therefore exists to avoid damage to timber and minimise waste wherever possible.
  4. Regeneration Procedures of <em>Pinus radiata</em> in the Southern Cape Province

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Part 4 of the series of papers concerning the regeneration of Pinus radiata deals with characteristics of the planting stock. Such studies are motivated by the necessity of evaluating different planting stock alternatives for a variety of operational environments. This...
  5. A computer model to predict the structure, performance and feed requirements of a beef herd

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Two computer models of beef enterprises are explained. STOCKFLOW generates monthly herd structures based on 13 animal groups, each comprising animals with similar feed requirements, while FEEDNEED computes the feed requirements of each group. These models use the VISICALC program...
  6. Production and quality norms of certain grass species for fodder flow planning: Pretoria area

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Four subtropical (Cenchrus. Digitaria, Anthephora and Sorghum) and two temperate grass species (Festuca. Agrotricum) were grown in a replicated field experiment at three levels of N application, with adequate P and K. Species were mown at 4‐, 6‐ and 8‐weekly...
  7. The use of the cellulase digestion procedure for indexing the dry matter digestibility of forages

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The in vitro cellulase technique was compared with the rumen liquor technique and found to be more efficient for the indexing of the dry matter disappearance (DMD) of forages. A cellulase enzyme concentration of 80 IU/gDM gave a satisfactory linear...
  8. A mathematical model used to describe animal performance on kikuyu and coastcross II pastures

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Data collected from a controlled grazing trial, in which the quality and quantity of kikuyu (Pennisetum clandestinum) and Coastcross II (Cynodon hybrid) pastures fertilized at 2 nitrogen levels (150 and 300 kg N/ha/a) and stocked at 3 stocking rates (8,05,10,74...
  9. The performance of beef cows on <em>Digitaria eriantha</em> silage

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Digitaria eriantha silage, ensiled when the plants were in the late flowering stage (March), was fed ad lib to mature, non‐pregnant, dry Hereford cows from mid‐May to mid‐September. The average daily gain during a 98‐day feeding period was 0,35 kg/cow...
  10. Use of the microwave oven for drying herbage samples in the field

    Use of the microwave oven for drying herbage samples in the field

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Drying of herbage samples in the field using a microwave oven powered by a portable generator has saved time and eliminated the transporting of samples to other stations for handling. Microwave drying is compared to drying in conventional forced-air ovens...
