  1. 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...
  2. Die produksie van smutsvingergras in die wes‐transvaal<sup>1</sup>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Die produksie van Smutsvingergras (Digitaria eriantha) is in yerskeie proewe in die Hoëveldstreek, op Potchefstroom, in die verlede bepaal. Hierdie proewe is oor ‘n lang periode op verskillende grondsoorte en met verskillende bemestingspeile uitge‐voer. Alle resultate is saamgevoeg en met...
  3. Variation in important pasture grasses. II. Cytogenetic and reproductive variation

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The chromosome numbers and reproductive variation of seven important pasture grasses from South Africa are compared. This comparison indicates that all these species form polyploid complexes, all reproduce both sexually and either apomictically or vegetatively, and some form of hybridization...
  4. The value of subtropical grass pastures for use as foggage on the eastern Transvaal Highveld

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The utilization of frosted herbage of Pennisetwn clandestinwn, Paspalum notation, Digitaria eriantha, Cynodon sp. and Chloris gayana by Merino wethers during the winter confirmed the potential of this practice as an alternative winter feeding strategy under Highveld conditions. P. clandestinwn...
  5. Dry matter yield and water use efficiency of five perennial subtropical grasses at four levels of water availability

    Dry matter yield and water use efficiency of five perennial subtropical grasses at four levels of water availability

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The effect of four levels of water availability on the yield and water use efficiency (WUE) of five subtropical perennial grasses was evaluated in a small plot trial under a rain shelter. The soil profiles were brought to 100% (W4...
  6. Qualitative evaluation of four subtropical grasses as standing hay: diet selection, rumen fermentation and partial digestibility by sheep

    Qualitative evaluation of four subtropical grasses as standing hay: diet selection, rumen fermentation and partial digestibility by sheep

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The nutritive value of four subtropical grasses (Panicum maximum, Anthephora pubescens, Digitaria eriantha and Chloris gayana) standing hay were compared in terms of qualitative intake and partial digestibility by sheep. The species differed significantly in terms of diet quality selected...
  7. The yield potential and crude protein content of five rhizomatous and stoloniferous grass pastures in the escarpment areas of the eastern Transvaal

    The yield potential and crude protein content of five rhizomatous and stoloniferous grass pastures in the escarpment areas of the eastern Transvaal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Whilst Cynodon aethiopicus and the Cynodon hybrid, ‘Coast Cross II’, proved to be unsuited to the cool high rainfall conditions, Acroceras macrum, Pennisetum clandestinum and Digitarla scalarum were well adapted. There was little difference in yield potential between local and...
