  1. Game fence presence and permeability influences the local movement and distribution of South African mammals

    Game fence presence and permeability influences the local movement and distribution of South African mammals

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Fences are utilised throughout the world to restrict the movements of wildlife, protecting them from threats and reducing human–wildlife conflict. In South Africa the number of privately-owned fenced game reserves has greatly increased in recent years, but little is known...
  2. Site Evaluation in Black Wattle with Special Reference to Soil Factors

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Together with climate, soil characteristics are the most important factors affecting tree growth. However, the attempts in many site evaluation studies to establish a direct relationship between soil factors and tree growth have not been very successful, the exception being...
  3. Soil factors affecting tree growth and root development in a citrus orchard

    Soil factors affecting tree growth and root development in a citrus orchard

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Tree- and root-growth parameters correlated well with a number of soil properties Useful relationships were established between unconfined penetrometer resistance, air capacity (at FWC), tree growth and root development.
  4. Long term nitrogen and phosphorus application to veld

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The long term effects of a 5N x 3P factorial fertilizer application trial on hay yields, botanical composition and soil properties of veld are presented. Significant increases in hay yields were recorded during most years. There was a strong correlation...
  5. Remote sensing applications for monitoring rangeland vegetation

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Remote sensing techniques hold considerable promise for the inventory and monitoring of natural resources on range‐lands. A significant lack of information concerning basic spectral characteristics of range vegetation and soils has resulted in a lack of rangeland applications. To use...
  6. Invloed van nitraat:ammoniumverhoudings op die ontwikkeling van <em>Zea mays</em> L.

    Invloed van nitraat:ammoniumverhoudings op die ontwikkeling van <em>Zea mays</em> L.

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Die invloed van drie nitraat:ammoniumverhoudings by twee stikstofkonsentrasies op planteienskappe is met blomtyd en na fisiologiese volwassenheid vir suiwerlyne gemeet. 'n Kwartssandkultuur is as groeimedium in 'n glashuis gebruik. Toenemende NH4 +-verhoudings het planthoogtes, blaaroppervlaktes en droëmateriaalproduksie van verskillende plantkomponente...
  7. Sources of variation in spring wheat (<em>Triticum aestivum</em> L.) cultivars of the Western and Southern Cape. I. Milling and dough development characteristics

    Sources of variation in spring wheat (<em>Triticum aestivum</em> L.) cultivars of the Western and Southern Cape. I. Milling and dough development characteristics

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Approximately 90% of the annual wheat crop produced in the Republic of South Africa is milled into flour for bread-baking purposes. The percentage of flour extracted, as well as the dough development properties, determine the milling and dough mixing characteristics...
  8. Sources of variation in spring wheat (<em>Triticum aestivum</em> L.) cultivars of the Western and Southern Cape. II. Baking characteristics

    Sources of variation in spring wheat (<em>Triticum aestivum</em> L.) cultivars of the Western and Southern Cape. II. Baking characteristics

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Protein content and quality determine flour quality, as well as the success of bread-baking. The stability of wheat quality characteristics is of great importance to the milling and baking industry, who have to produce an end product of acceptable and...
  9. Development and validation of relationships between sunflower seed quality and easily measurable seed characteristics for grading purposes

    Development and validation of relationships between sunflower seed quality and easily measurable seed characteristics for grading purposes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Sunflower seed delivered by farmers is usually traded without taking seed quality into account, owing to the lack of a quick and inexpensive method for quality assessment at delivery points. Seed quality parameters (oil content, protein content, hullability and amount...
  10. Frodo and Darius: South African potato cultivars with good processing quality

    Frodo and Darius: South African potato cultivars with good processing quality

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Two newly released South African potato cultivars, Frodo and Darius, were compared with two foreign processing cultivars, Pentland Dell and Shepody. The cultivars were grown under sprinkler irrigation and evaluated for external and internal tuber characteristics and processing quality. The...
