  1. The Impact of Weeds and Two Legume Crops on <em>Eucalyptus</em> Hybrid Clone Establishment

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The relative competition imposed on Eucalyptus hybrid clone GC304 grown from establishment with either complete weed cover, intra-row weeds, inter-row weeds or legume cover crops of Mucuna pruriens and Vigna sinensis is under study in a field experiment on a...
  2. Measurement of water potential in the trunks of citrus trees using screen-caged thermocouple Psychrometers

    Measurement of water potential in the trunks of citrus trees using screen-caged thermocouple Psychrometers

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Screen-caged thermocouple Psychrometers were used to non-destructively measure the water potential (ψ) in the trunks of mature citrus trees (Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck), and the values compared with the ψ of covered, exposed, and shaded leaves of the same tree...
  3. Population dynamics and potential yield of three species of giant winkles in the Western Cape, South Africa

    Population dynamics and potential yield of three species of giant winkles in the Western Cape, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    Of the southern African intertidal and shallow subtidal trochid and turbinid gastropods, Turbo sarmaticus, T. cidaris and Oxystele sinensis, are the most abundant large species, and therefore obvious targets for a winkle fishery. T. sarmaticus is harvested by recreational snorkel...
  4. Dry matter yield and quality of five annual subtropical fodder crops at different irrigation levels

    Dry matter yield and quality of five annual subtropical fodder crops at different irrigation levels

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Maize, soybean, cowpeas, fodder sorghum and pearl millet were cultivated in a small plot trial under a rain shelter. The crops were subjected to four irrigation levels. The yields of fodder sorghum and pearl millet were better under severely water...
  5. Evaluation of mefenoxam and fludioxonil for control of <em>Rhizoctonia solani</em>, <em>Pythium ultimum</em> and <em>Fusarium solani</em> on cowpea

    Evaluation of mefenoxam and fludioxonil for control of <em>Rhizoctonia solani</em>, <em>Pythium ultimum</em> and <em>Fusarium solani</em> on cowpea

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) is susceptible to pathogens such as Rhizoctonia solani, Pythium ultimum and Fusarium solani, which cause seedling diseases in cowpea and result in low yields. Three commercial synthetic fungicides containing mefenoxam 350 g ai L−1, mefenoxam 240 g ai L−1...
  6. Genotypic variation and correlations between yield system traits and yield components in African landraces of bambara groundnut

    Genotypic variation and correlations between yield system traits and yield components in African landraces of bambara groundnut

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Genetic information on a variety of traits contributing to grain yield is required to improve many crops. However, this information is lacking in bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdc.). To this end, 24 African bambara groundnut landraces were investigated for...
  7. Maturity, protein content and yield stability of cowpea in Uganda

    Maturity, protein content and yield stability of cowpea in Uganda

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Low yields and protein content are major constraints to cowpea production in semi-arid areas. A study was conducted to determine cowpea performance across diverse environments in Uganda. Twenty-eight cowpea genotypes were evaluated in a randomised complete block design with three...
  8. Comparison of glycaemic indices of some local beans (<em>Vigna unguiculata</em> [Linn] Walp varieties) in Nigerians

    Comparison of glycaemic indices of some local beans (<em>Vigna unguiculata</em> [Linn] Walp varieties) in Nigerians

    Background: Beans are recommended for their richness and for their salutary effect on blood glucose. Inter-species differences impact on blood glucose. What appeared unknown is whether varieties of beans of the same species (Vigna unguiculata [Linn] Walp) have differential effects...
  9. Performance and participatory evaluation of green gram genotypes in the semi-arid environments of Eastern Kenya

    Performance and participatory evaluation of green gram genotypes in the semi-arid environments of Eastern Kenya

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: East African Agricultural and Forestry Journal
    Green gram (Vigna radiata (L.) R Wilczek var. radiata) is an important pulse in the climatically marginal areas of Eastern Kenya. The pulse is cultivated primarily for food grain and income generation. Its productivity in Eastern Kenya has declined, because...
  10. Horizon scanning for alien predatory crabs: insights from South Africa

    Horizon scanning for alien predatory crabs: insights from South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Due to the presence of few dominant predators on South African rocky shores, this coastline could be vulnerable to invasion by predatory crabs. This study applied horizon scanning to create an ordered watch list of alien crab species that could...
