  1. Rangeland degradation in semi-arid Swaziland: effects of dip-tanks on herbaceous vegetation and soil properties

    Rangeland degradation in semi-arid Swaziland: effects of dip-tanks on herbaceous vegetation and soil properties

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    This study investigated dip-tank use effects on herbaceous vegetation and soil, and relationships between environmental and species variables. Eight dip-tanks, three each in sandy (DPBS) and loamy (DYRL) soils, and two in stony (ROSG) soils were used. Data were collected...
  2. Temporal and spatial dynamics of mineral levels of forage, soil and cattle blood serum in two semi-arid savannas of South Africa

    Temporal and spatial dynamics of mineral levels of forage, soil and cattle blood serum in two semi-arid savannas of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    In this study, we examined temporal and spatial dynamics of minerals of forage, soil and cattle serum in two savannas (valley and plain) of South Africa. The aims were to explore the relationships between ecosystem components, and plan communal grazing...
  3. Macro and trace elements of 26 browse species growing in semi-arid grazing lands of Eastern Cape, South Africa

    Macro and trace elements of 26 browse species growing in semi-arid grazing lands of Eastern Cape, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Leaves and twigs from woody plants provide essential nutrients to range animals. We examined variation in the mineral status of 26 woody species, and the influence of harvesting height as well as the interactions of the main effects on minerals...
  4. Communal farmers’ ecological knowledge and perceptions of grasses in the central Eastern Cape province, South Africa: similarities with field studies and scientific knowledge and their implications

    Communal farmers’ ecological knowledge and perceptions of grasses in the central Eastern Cape province, South Africa: similarities with field studies and scientific knowledge and their implications

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The local ecological knowledge (LEK) and perceptions of grasses were investigated in six semi-arid communal areas in the central Eastern Cape province, South Africa, and compared with field studies and scientific knowledge. Of the total of 21 grasses identified in...

  6. Responses of Ethiopian durum wheat (<em>Triticum turgidum</em> var durum L.) genotypes to drought stress

    Responses of Ethiopian durum wheat (<em>Triticum turgidum</em> var durum L.) genotypes to drought stress

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The aim of this study was to identify yield components associated with drought tolerance in durum wheat. Twenty six durum wheat genotypes, from different agro-ecologies of Ethiopia were evaluated under moisture stress and non-stress conditions (35% and 70% available soil...
  7. Differences in the level of D-glucose and sucrose among durum wheat (<em>Triticum turgidum var durum L.</em>) genotypes differing in their responses to drought stress

    Differences in the level of D-glucose and sucrose among durum wheat (<em>Triticum turgidum var durum L.</em>) genotypes differing in their responses to drought stress

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The effect of drought stress on the content of water soluble carbohydrate (sucrose and D-glucose) was investigated in durum wheat (Triticum turgidum var durum L.) above ground organs to assess and characterise the responses of genotypes with differing responses to...
  8. Morpho-physiological response of durum wheat genotypes to drought stress

    Morpho-physiological response of durum wheat genotypes to drought stress

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The impact of moisture stress on phenology and growth varies for genotypes and the growth stages at which stress is encountered. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of moisture stress on some morpho-physiological traits of durum...
