  1. Single-tree water use and water-use efficiencies of selected indigenous and introduced species in the Southern Cape region of South Africa

    Single-tree water use and water-use efficiencies of selected indigenous and introduced species in the Southern Cape region of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    In South Africa, the development of a plantation tree industry using fast-growing introduced species was accelerated by the limited extent of indigenous forests. However, concerns about the impacts of plantations on the country’s limited water resources has initiated forest hydrology...
  2. Whole-tree sap flow responses to soil water and weather variables for <em>Pinus radiata</em> and three indigenous species in a southern afrotemperate forest region

    Whole-tree sap flow responses to soil water and weather variables for <em>Pinus radiata</em> and three indigenous species in a southern afrotemperate forest region

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    In a water-scarce country such as South Africa, timber and fibre production often stands in conflict with catchment water yields. The optimal provision of both is sought. Forest hydrological experiments improve our understanding of the soil–plant–atmosphere continuum and facilitate the...
  3. Productivity of non-heading Chinese cabbage (<em>Brassica rapa</em> subsp. <em>chinensis</em>) under different agronomic management factors

    Productivity of non-heading Chinese cabbage (<em>Brassica rapa</em> subsp. <em>chinensis</em>) under different agronomic management factors

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Productivity of non-heading Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa L. subsp. chinensis) was evaluated at Roodeplaat over two winter seasons (2012 and 2013). Agronomic factors considered were plant density, nitrogen level, irrigation frequency and planting date. Irrigating thrice or once a week...
