  1. 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...
  2. Performance of <em>Medicago sativa</em> under dryland conditions on the eastern Highveld

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Increased livestock numbers and improved animal performance based on dryland lucerne pastures requiring little or no nitrogenous fertilizer have been demonstrated to be feasible on the eastern Highveld. With large scale planting of lucerne‐based pasture (25% of arable land) 350...
  3. 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...
  4. Effects of eight grazing systems on carcass mass gains of steers grazing irrigated <em>Cynodon aethiopicus</em> pastures

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Eight grazing systems were compared on irrigated Cynodon aethiopicus pastures which received 650 kg N, 36 kg P and 200 kg dolomitic limestone/ha, annually. There were either one, two, three, six or 18 paddocks in the systems, the single paddock...
  5. The effect of tebuthiuron on the vegetation of the thorn Bushveld of the Northern Cape – a preliminary report

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Two formulations of tebuthiuron i.e. Graslan 20P and Graslan 40P are currently being evaluated in the Molopo area. Tebuthiuron was applied aerially at ten application rates, in combination with two application dates.
  6. 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...
  7. The development of veld assessment in the northern Transvaal savanna I. Red Turfveld

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Grazing‐induced gradients in pasture species composition were characterized for the red turfveld of the Northern Transvaal savanna. A proposed classification of pasture species response to grazing was developed and the influence of state variables and driving forces other than grazing...
  8. The development of veld assessment in the northern Transvaal savanna II. Mixed bushveld

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Differences in pasture species composition as a consequence of grazing were used to develop a proposed classification of pasture species response to grazing, for both the Combretum apiculatum and the Acacia tortilis communities of the northern Transvaal mixed bushveld. The...
  9. 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...
  10. Growth and desiccation of <em>Themeda triandra</em> and <em>Sporobolus fimbriatus</em> in relation to diminishing moisture availability

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Water was withheld from individual plants of Themeda triandra and Sporobolus fimbriatus growing in pots in a greenhouse. Leaf extension growth, followed by successive degrees of tiller desiccation, were monitored on a daily basis and related to diminishing moisture availability...
