  1. Fermentative characteristics of <em>Digitaria eriantha</em> subsp. <em>eriantha</em> silage harvested at different stages of maturity

    Fermentative characteristics of <em>Digitaria eriantha</em> subsp. <em>eriantha</em> silage harvested at different stages of maturity

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    An experiment was conducted to investigate the influence of stage of growth at harvest on fermentative characteristics of Digitaria eriantha subsp. eriantha silage. The treatment included three different growth stages (early vegetative, boot stage and full-bloom stage). The materials were...
  2. Influence of molasses additive and moisture level at ensiling on fermentative characteristics of <em>Panicum maximum</em>

    Influence of molasses additive and moisture level at ensiling on fermentative characteristics of <em>Panicum maximum</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Silages made from directly cut or wilted Panicum maximum treated with or without molasses, were evaluated to determine fermentative characteristics. The grass was harvested at the boot stage of growth and the material of each treatment was ensiled in separate...
  3. Effect of temperature on cone bursting, seed extraction and germination in five provenances of <em>Pinus roxburghii</em> from Garhwal Himalaya in India

    Effect of temperature on cone bursting, seed extraction and germination in five provenances of <em>Pinus roxburghii</em> from Garhwal Himalaya in India

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Pinus roxburghii (chir pine or long-needle pine) is considered to be a fire-hardy species. In this study the effect of a wide range of elevated temperatures (from 40 °C to 150 °C) on cone bursting and subsequent seed germination was...
  4. Ontogeny of <em>Themeda triandra</em> tillers in the false thornveld of the eastern cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Marked populations of Themeda triandra tillers were sequentially sampled at fortnightly intervals under normal conditions and without moisture stress respectively, covering a period from tiller initiation through to senescence after flowering. Parameters recorded were height of shoot apex, tiller mass,...
  5. Die invloed van drie tussenrybewerkingsmetodes op opbrengs en chemiese samestelling van droëlandlusern op die oos‐transvaalse hoëveld.

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Drie tussenrybewerkingsmetodes, skeurploeg (40 — 50 cm diep) skoffel (5 — H) cm diep) en kontrole (geen bewerking) is gedurende die 1982/83 en 1983/84 groeiseisoene in ‘n bestaande lusernstand uitgevoer. Hierdie lusern was in 0,9 m rye gevestig. Tye van...
  6. Evapotranspirasie en waterverbruiksdoeltreffendheid van verskillende grasspesies in die sentrale Oranje‐Vrystaat

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Evapotranspiration and water use efficiency of different grass species in the central Orange Free State. Evapotranspiration (Et) and water use efficiency (WUE) were determined for each of seven grass species during the 1986/87 and 1987/88 seasons. The highest and lowest...
  7. Some effects of termitaria on veld in the eastern Cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    A survey was conducted to determine some effects of termite mounds on the veld. Termitaria were found to occupy approximately 0,4% of the area of the paddock under investigation. Growth of grasses immediately surrounding intact termitaria increased as shown by...
  8. Quantitative description of woody plant communities: Part I. An approach

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Various descriptive units for woody plant communities are proposed. These are the Evapotranspiration Tree Equivalent (ETTE), Browse Tree Equivalent (BTE) and Canopied Subhabitat Index (CSI), which describe the status of a woody community in terms of potential moisture use, value...

    Die rol van sekere omgewingsfaktore by alachloraktiwiteit

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Biotoetse met graansorghum (Sorghum bicolor L.) is in potte in glashuise en groeikabinette uitgevoer. Geselekteerde grond- eienskappe is gekorreleer met alachloraktiwiteit. Organiese materiaalinhoud (% C) was die beste gekorreleerd met die aktiwiteit van alachlor en pH die swakste. Die r-waardes...
  10. Effect of moisture supply on CAM in <em>Opuntia aurantiaca</em> (jointed cactus)

    Effect of moisture supply on CAM in <em>Opuntia aurantiaca</em> (jointed cactus)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The patterns of gas exchange exhibited by Opuntia aurantiaca under controlled conditions (photoperiod 12 h; day/night temperature regime 30/15°C) were investigated for plants subjected to various levels of moisture stress. Unstressed plants exhibited a typical full-CAM pattern of gas exchange...
