    Towards reduced herbicide use in forest vegetation management

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    Mechanical, manual, thermal, biological and chemical methods of managing forest vegetation have, to a large extent, been developed independently. The effectiveness and relatively low cost of chemical herbicides, however, have led to systems of vegetation management that rely on their...
  3. Season of Application Affects Herbicide Efficacy in <em>Pinus radiata</em> Plantations in the Southern Cape Region of South Africa

    Season of Application Affects Herbicide Efficacy in <em>Pinus radiata</em> Plantations in the Southern Cape Region of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    Three herbicides (glyphosate, hexazinone and metsulfuron methyl) at three rates were tested on indigenous herbaceous shrubs (macchia) in a one-year-old virgin Pinus radiata stand. A mechanical ring weeding of 1 m radius was included as a control treatment. Herbicides were...
  4. Targeted spot vegetation management in <em>Pinus radiata</em> and <em>P. elliottii</em> plantations, Tsitsikamma, South Africa

    Targeted spot vegetation management in <em>Pinus radiata</em> and <em>P. elliottii</em> plantations, Tsitsikamma, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    Towards the end of 1995, granular herbicides were introduced in South African forestry. Traditionally, weed control was done by manual slashing or herbicides were applied by knapsack sprayer. Targeted, spot herbicide application is more environmentally friendly, less expensive and easier...

  6. The digestibility of raw and processed soybeans by Helmeted Guineafowl, <em>Numida meleagris</em>

    The digestibility of raw and processed soybeans by Helmeted Guineafowl, <em>Numida meleagris</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Helmeted Guineafowl, Numida meleagris, populations have declined significantly within the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal since the early 1980s. Because guineafowl have been observed feeding on harvested soybean lands and because raw soybeans are known to contain anti-nutritional factors, research into the...
