    Impact of seed burial depth on the emergence and growth of annual forage legumes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The importance of evaluating the tolerance of forages to deeper seed burial is often overlooked. Therefore, this study evaluated the effects of increased seed burial depth on the emergence, vigour and early seedling growth of annual forage legume cultivars in...
  2. Selenium addition affects early seedling growth of <em>Medicago polymorpha</em> and <em>Trifolium subterraneum</em>, but not seed germination: a preliminary study

    Selenium addition affects early seedling growth of <em>Medicago polymorpha</em> and <em>Trifolium subterraneum</em>, but not seed germination: a preliminary study

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Little information regarding the effects of selenium addition on germination and early growth of annual leguminous forage crops exists. This study therefore evaluates the effects of selenium addition on the germination and early seedling growth of two annual forage legume...
  3. Assessing legumes indigenous to South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland for their pasture potential

    Assessing legumes indigenous to South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland for their pasture potential

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    In contrast to the exploration and use of southern African grass plant genetic resources over the past century, only a few indigenous legume species are currently used as forages, notwithstanding the vast untapped legume diversity available in southern Africa. The...
  4. The impacts of season and livestock management strategy on the quality of diets selected by goats and sheep in the semi-arid rangelands of Namaqualand, South Africa

    The impacts of season and livestock management strategy on the quality of diets selected by goats and sheep in the semi-arid rangelands of Namaqualand, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Access to good-quality forages is one of the major limitations to livestock production in semi-arid pastoral systems. This study aimed to determine whether there are differences in the nutritional quality of diets selected by herded and free-ranging goat and sheep...
  5. Seasonal variation of grassland basal cover

    Seasonal variation of grassland basal cover

    Preliminary results of a long‐term study of seasonal variation in grassland basal cover are presented. Seasonal stability appears to have been taken for granted but has not yet been shown experimentally. The experimental area is situated in the National Botanic...

    Morphology and ultrastructure of glandular and nonglandular trichomes on the leaves of <em>Athrixia phylicoides</em> (Asteraceae)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Athrixia phylicoides is one of many plants from the Asteraceae family used as a traditional herbal medicine. Pharmacological evaluation of leaf extracts confirmed that the plant has anti-inflammatory, antihypertensive, narcotic and analgesic properties. The medicinal properties of plants are often...

    KWANTITATIEF EN/OF KWALITATIEF: DIE BEGRONDING VAN TAALADVIES?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Linguistics
    Die gebrekkige tradisie van kwantitatiewe navorsing in 'n gebruikskundige omgewing lei dikwels daartoe dat algemene advies oor die gebruik van taalverskynsels, soos dié van die passiefkonstruksie byvoorbeeld, aan gebruikers gegee word.
  8. ON AN ELLIPTIC BOUNDARY VALUE PROBLEM ARISING IN MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMICS

    ON AN ELLIPTIC BOUNDARY VALUE PROBLEM ARISING IN MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMICS

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    Results are derived concerning the spectral properties of an elliptic boundary value problem arising in the mathematical theory of magnetohydrodynamics which are of basic importance for the further development of this theory.
