  1. The occurrence of mycotoxigenic fungi in abalone feed in South Africa

    The occurrence of mycotoxigenic fungi in abalone feed in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Abalone feed in South Africa is mainly produced from locally sourced grains and has soy or fishmeal as a protein source. Contamination with fungal species associated with grain-based animal feed is, therefore, a predictable risk. Various Fusarium, Penicillium and Aspergillus...
  2. Soil aggregate stability: The contribution of biological and physical processes

    Soil aggregate stability: The contribution of biological and physical processes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The roles of fungal growth, soil organic matter and particle re-orientation in soil aggregate stabilization during ageing of two British soils with different cropping histories were studied. Soils were subjected to simulated cultivation, and the subsequent changes in aggregate stability...
  3. The role of insect damage in the colonization of groundnut (<em>Arachis hypogaea</em> L.) pods by fungi

    The role of insect damage in the colonization of groundnut (<em>Arachis hypogaea</em> L.) pods by fungi

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The incidence of fungal infection in insect-damaged and healthy pods and the resultant colonization of kernels was determined from commercial fields at four localities over a period of two seasons. Based on number of colonies per 100 plates, the order...
  4. Germination of South African soya bean seed lots

    Germination of South African soya bean seed lots

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A survey of the germination performance of some South African soya bean [Glycine max (L.) Merrill.] cultivars, produced at different localities, was conducted. Seeds were harvested from two early-maturing (Columbus and Crawford), two intermediate-maturing (Prima and Highveld Top), and two...
  5. Resistance of elite maize inbred lines to isolates of <em>Stenocarpella maydis</em> (Berk.) Sutton

    Resistance of elite maize inbred lines to isolates of <em>Stenocarpella maydis</em> (Berk.) Sutton

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Fifteen maize inbred lines were evaluated for resistance to ear rot, using artificial inoculation of plants with isolates of Stenocarpella maydis from 13 localities in the South African maize production area. Five inbreds and four isolates were common to the...
  6. <em>In-vitro</em> inhibition of mycelial growth of several phytopathogenic fungi by soluble potassium silicate

    <em>In-vitro</em> inhibition of mycelial growth of several phytopathogenic fungi by soluble potassium silicate

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Soluble silicon has been reported to suppress some plant diseases, but in vitro inhibition of phytopathogenic fungi has not been demonstrated. In the current study in-vitro dose-responses towards soluble potassium silicate (20.7% SiO2) were determined for Phytophthora cinnamomi, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum,...
  7. The antifungal activity of potassium silicate and the role of pH against selected plant pathogenic fungi <em>in vitro</em>

    The antifungal activity of potassium silicate and the role of pH against selected plant pathogenic fungi <em>in vitro</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    In-vitro inhibition of mycelial growth of phytopathogenic fungi grown on potassium silicate amended media has been demonstrated. In the current study the respective effects on fungal growth of changes in the pH of growth medium with increased concentrations of potassium...
  8. <em>Ceratocystis</em> species: emerging pathogens of non-native plantation <em>Eucalyptus</em> and <em>Acacia</em> species

    <em>Ceratocystis</em> species: emerging pathogens of non-native plantation <em>Eucalyptus</em> and <em>Acacia</em> species

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    The fungal genus Ceratocystis includes many economically important tree pathogens. Until the 1980s, this genus of plant pathogens was not known from non-native plantation-grown forestry species. However, during the course of the last 20 years, a number of reports have...
  9. Histological confirmation of epizootic ulcerative syndrome in two cyprinid species from Lake Liambezi, Zambezi Region, Namibia

    Histological confirmation of epizootic ulcerative syndrome in two cyprinid species from Lake Liambezi, Zambezi Region, Namibia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Epizootic ulcerative syndrome (EUS) is a fish disease caused by an infection of the oomycete, Aphanomyces invadans. During a fish biodiversity assessment of Lake Liambezi, Zambezi Region, Namibia, in August 2011, two Barbus haasianus and three Barbus unitaeniatus with circular...
  10. Successful treatment of cutaneous mucormycosis in a young diabetic with end-stage renal disease using combination systemic antifungal agents

    Successful treatment of cutaneous mucormycosis in a young diabetic with end-stage renal disease using combination systemic antifungal agents

    This article reports successful eradication of isolated cutaneous mucormycosis in a young poorly controlled type 1 diabetic patient with end-stage renal disease using a combination of systemic antifungal agents and aggressive surgical debridement.
