  1. Fertilization of southern tall grassveld of natal: Effects on botanical composition and utilization under grazing

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The long‐term effects of nitrogen, phosphate and lime on change in botanical composition and utilization under grazing of Southern Tall Grassveld of Natal are presented. Nitrogen, phosphate, lime and type of nitrogen affected botanical composition significantly. Generally, fertilization had the...
  2. Nutrition of intensive pastures in the summer rainfall areas of southern Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Consideration is given to the current state of knowledge regarding the nutrition of cultivated pastures in the summer rainfall areas of southern Africa. Research efforts over the years have concentrated on the nitrogen (N) requirements of pastures, with relatively little...
  3. The response of Bambara groundnut (<em>Voandzeia subterranea</em>) and pigeon pea (<em>Cajanus cajan</em>) to applications of lime, P and K

    The response of Bambara groundnut (<em>Voandzeia subterranea</em>) and pigeon pea (<em>Cajanus cajan</em>) to applications of lime, P and K

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Voandzeia subterranea and Cajanus cajan are important pulse crops in tropical and subtropical Africa and their drought hardiness and ability to utilize poor soils are inter alia reasons for this popularity. Both species hold considerable promise as crops in South...
  4. 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...
  5. Invloed van bemesting op die oliekonsentrasie oliekwaliteit van sonneblomsaad

    Invloed van bemesting op die oliekonsentrasie oliekwaliteit van sonneblomsaad

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Influence of fertilization on the oil concentration and oil quality of sunflower seed. Fertilizer trials (N,P,K and lime) were conducted over two seasons at three localities. Results indicate that 150 kg N ha−1 fertilizer decreased the oil concentration of the...
  6. A field evaluation of the differential tolerance to soil acidity of forty-eight South African maize cultivars

    A field evaluation of the differential tolerance to soil acidity of forty-eight South African maize cultivars

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A field experiment was conducted on a Normandien clay loam (Plinthic Paleudult) to compare the acid tolerance of 48 commercially grown maize (Zea mays L.) cultivars. Cultivars were compared in terms of grain yield, plant height and leaf Al content...
  7. Die oplosbaarheid en mobiliteit van kalk in sand

    Die oplosbaarheid en mobiliteit van kalk in sand

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Die oplosbaarheid, diffusie en loging van twee kalktipes is in 'n suiwer sandmedium bestudeer. Deur van sand gebruik te maak is die kompliserende effek van die uitruilfase van grond geëlimineer. Die uitwerking van byvoegings van KCl, NH4Cl, Na2EDTA, organiese materiaal...
  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 effect of lime, KCl and parent material on the cation exchange capacity of some acid subsoils of the western Cape

    The effect of lime, KCl and parent material on the cation exchange capacity of some acid subsoils of the western Cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Cation exchange capacity (CEC) values obtained by 22Na dilution for a number of mineralogically diverse acid subsoils reflected positive responses to lime and to treatment with KCl such that: CEC (unlimed, no KCl) < (unlimed + KCl) < (limed, no...
  10. Comparative response of lucerne (<em>Medicago sativa</em> L.) and sainfoin (<em>Onobrychis viciaefolia</em> Scop.) to applications of P, K and lime

    Comparative response of lucerne (<em>Medicago sativa</em> L.) and sainfoin (<em>Onobrychis viciaefolia</em> Scop.) to applications of P, K and lime

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A pot experiment and an irrigated field trial in which the response of sainfoin and lucerne to different levels of P, K and lime was compared, are described. The results of the pot experiment suggested a better response to lime...
