  1. Effect of cutting frequency on the yield and quality of legumes and grasses under irrigation

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Four pasture legumes and seven grasses were subjected to a range of cutting frequencies during the 1980/81 season. A wide range of responses emerged, judged by both the dry matter and TDN yield responses of the different species. Whereas two...
  2. Production of pasture species in the winter rainfall region: Simulation of dry matter production

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Production data derived from cutting trials undertaken at a number of sites in the Winter Rainfall Region were used to derive equations for the prediction of the yield of a number of pasture species. Inputs into the models include climatic...
  3. Influence of grazing management on the production of an irrigated grass/legume pasture in the Rûens area of the Southern cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The production of an irrigated grass/legume pasture was determined using Merino ewes on rotational and continuous grazing systems. The clover content of the pasture declined, while the grass content increased under both systems. The lucerne content of the rotationally‐grazed pastures...
  4. Seasonal grazing capacity of an irrigated grass/legume pasture in the Rûens area of the southern Cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Seasonal changes in grazing capacity of an irrigated grass/legume mixture consisting of lucerne, red clover, white clover, tall fescue, cocksfoot and perennial ryegrass were determined in the Rûens area of the southern Cape. Applying variable stocking rates and three grazing...
  5. A comparison of grass and grass/legume pastures under irrigation in the Outeniqua area of the southern Cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Two grass and five grass/legume pastures were evaluated over a period of two seasons at two seasonally set grazing pressures and under two grazing management systems, involving five and seven paddocks per flock and a seven‐day period of stay. Grazing...
  6. Nitrogen fixation of annual temperate clover species determined by the nitrogen difference method

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The nitrogen fixation ability of Trifolium vesiculosum cv. Amclo and Trifolium subterraneum cv. Mount Barker in pure and mixed stands with Lolium multiflorum cv. Midmar were compared using the nitrogen difference method (NDM). The percentage and quantity of apparent legume‐derived...
  7. The influence of lime and phosphorus on the growth of white clover on highly weathered Natal soils

    The influence of lime and phosphorus on the growth of white clover on highly weathered Natal soils

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Results of field studies conducted on highly weathered Natal soils in which the performance of white clover (Trifolium repens cv. Regal ladino) was examined under a range of lime and P treatments applied in factorial combination, are presented. Despite adverse...
  8. Response of subterranean clover to liming and phosphate fertilization on a low potassium soil

    Response of subterranean clover to liming and phosphate fertilization on a low potassium soil

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Several Trifolium varieties grown in an acid Bokkeveld shale soil responded positively to small additions of lime and P. Growth was probably limited by a K deficiency, and it is unlikely that Trifolium species could be successfully grown as cover...
  9. The effects of strategic nitrogen fertiliser application during the cool season on perennial ryegrass-white clover pastures in the Western Cape Province 1. Soil nitrogen dynamics

    The effects of strategic nitrogen fertiliser application during the cool season on perennial ryegrass-white clover pastures in the Western Cape Province 1. Soil nitrogen dynamics

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The dynamics of soil inorganic-N in reaction to a single, strategic application of fertiliser N were studied during the period 2000 to 2002 in an Oakleaf soil with a clay content increasing from 10 to 30.8% with depth. Soil inorganic-N...
  10. The effects of strategic nitrogen fertiliser application during the cool season on perennial ryegrass-white clover pastures in the Western Cape Province 2. Dry matter production

    The effects of strategic nitrogen fertiliser application during the cool season on perennial ryegrass-white clover pastures in the Western Cape Province 2. Dry matter production

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The response of an irrigated perennial ryegrass-white clover pasture to fertiliser nitrogen application rates of 0, 50, 100 and 150 kg N ha−1 applied in either autumn, early winter, late winter, early spring or late spring was investigated over a...
