  1. 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...
  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. 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...
  4. Influence of grazing management on the production of an irrigated grass/legume pasture in the Rûens area of the Southern cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The production of an irrigated grass/legume pasture was determined using Merino ewes on rotational and continuous grazing systems. The clover content of the pasture declined, while the grass content increased under both systems. The lucerne content of the rotationally‐grazed pastures...
  5. Seasonal grazing capacity of an irrigated grass/legume pasture in the Rûens area of the southern Cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Seasonal changes in grazing capacity of an irrigated grass/legume mixture consisting of lucerne, red clover, white clover, tall fescue, cocksfoot and perennial ryegrass were determined in the Rûens area of the southern Cape. Applying variable stocking rates and three grazing...
  6. 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...
  7. Effects of level and timing of irrigation on growth and water use of lucerne

    Effects of level and timing of irrigation on growth and water use of lucerne

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A six-year flood irrigation trial with lucerne (Medicago sativa cv. Karoo) was conducted on a sandy loam soil in the south-western part of the Cape Province at Oudtshoorn. Two cropping practices, whereby one or two forage cuttings are followed by...
  8. Die swawelstatus van besproeiingsgronde onder veranderende bemestingspraktyke

    Die swawelstatus van besproeiingsgronde onder veranderende bemestingspraktyke

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Die effek van die gebruik van swawelvrye teenoor swawelbevattende bemestingstowwe op die swawelstatus van 'n Mangano-grond van Vaalharts, is met behulp van 'n potproef ondersoek. Waar swawelvrye bemestingstowwe gebruik is was gebreksimptome na die derde snysel reeds duidelik sigbaar by...
  9. Field reactions of lucerne genotypes to anthracnose and crown rot caused by <em>Colletotrichum trifolii</em>

    Field reactions of lucerne genotypes to anthracnose and crown rot caused by <em>Colletotrichum trifolii</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Nineteen different cultivars and experimental lines of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) were inoculated with sand-bran cultures of Colletotrichum trifolii Bain & Essary and evaluated for resistance to anthracnose and crown rot under local conditions. The various genotypes differed significantly in...
  10. Influence of temperature during the preceding growth period of lucerne on its regrowth at different temperatures

    Influence of temperature during the preceding growth period of lucerne on its regrowth at different temperatures

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    One-year-old lucerne (Medicago sativa L. cv. ‘Vernal’) plants were grown to first flower through three cuttings in three temperature regimes, H (33°C day/24°C night), W (27718°C) and C (21712°C), to ascertain the influence of temperature preceding defoliation on subsequent growth...
