  1. Explicit reading time in chartered accountancy examinations: perceptions of students and lecturers

    Explicit reading time in chartered accountancy examinations: perceptions of students and lecturers

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Accounting Research
    In 2011, the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) changed the structure of the first qualifying examination to include explicit reading time, during which candidates are given the scenario(s) of the paper without giving them the “Required” section. This...
  2. Interrelationships between veld condition, herbage mass, stocking rate and animal performance in the Tall Grassland of Natal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Grazing trials were established at three sites in the Tall Grassveld of Natal. The objectives were to determine (a) patterns in herbage mass in relation to veld condition, stocking rate and commencement of spring grazing, and (b) animal performance in...
  3. Responses of Italian ryegrass to phosphorus on highly‐weathered soils

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Italian ryegrass (Loliwn multiflorum cv. Midmar) responses to fertilizer P were studied in field experiments under irrigation on highly‐weathered ferrallitic soils at two localities in Natal. Each experiment was conducted over two seasons (1985 and 1986), the pasture being re‐established...
  4. A comparison of seed vigour tests for maize (<em>Zea mays</em> L.)

    A comparison of seed vigour tests for maize (<em>Zea mays</em> L.)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A number of seed vigour tests were conducted on two groups of maize seed lots. One group consisted of six seed lots of different cultivars while the other group consisted of six sub-lots of one cultivar, artificially aged for different...
  5. The relationship between the phosphorus requirement and some phosphorus characteristics of selected soils of the South African tobacco industry

    The relationship between the phosphorus requirement and some phosphorus characteristics of selected soils of the South African tobacco industry

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Estimates of the phosphorus requirement (P0.11) of 20 selected soils of the South African tobacco industry were interpolated from phosphorus sorption isotherms. The relationships between P0.11 and various soil phosphorus characteristics, including Bray 2 P content and various indices of...
  6. Predicting seedling emergence of cabbage and onion using vigour tests

    Predicting seedling emergence of cabbage and onion using vigour tests

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Predicting seedling emergence using standard and non-standard germination temperatures, standard accelerated ageing (AA) and saturated salt accelerated ageing (SSAA) tests, were investigated. Germinations were performed at temperatures of 10°, 20°, 20°/30° and 30°C for cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata L.)...
  7. Long-term kinetics of phosphate desorption from soil and its relationship with plant growth

    Long-term kinetics of phosphate desorption from soil and its relationship with plant growth

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Knowledge on the availability of residual P in soils is of great importance for fertilization management. The use of dialysis membrane tubes filled with hydrous ferric oxide solution has recently been reported as an effective way to characterize P desorption...
  8. Open-top chamber facility to study air pollution impacts in South Africa. Part II: SO<sub>2</sub>–drought interactions on yield, photosynthesis and symbiotic nitrogen fixation in soybean

    Open-top chamber facility to study air pollution impacts in South Africa. Part II: SO<sub>2</sub>–drought interactions on yield, photosynthesis and symbiotic nitrogen fixation in soybean

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    South Africa has an extremely energy-intensive economy, resulting in substantial air pollution through its coal-fired power stations. Modelled sulphur dioxide (SO2) concentrations on the central Highveld mostly range between 10 and 50 ppb, exceeding 50 ppb in source areas. Well-watered...
  9. A Characterization of the Prime Closed Filter Compactification of a Topological Space

    A Characterization of the Prime Closed Filter Compactification of a Topological Space

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    The prime compactification whose points are the prime closed filters can be defined for a general topological space and is naturally functorial. We derive several properties of this compactification and present a characterization.
  10. Intra-annual variation of arthropod-plant interactions and arthropod trophic structure in an endangered grassland in the Free State province, South Africa

    Intra-annual variation of arthropod-plant interactions and arthropod trophic structure in an endangered grassland in the Free State province, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Arthropods are valuable biological indicators owing to strong relationships with primary producers. The supposition that arthropod-plant interactions are constant over seasons was tested using Mantel tests on correlations between these groups. A total of 78 plant species and 108 arthropod...
