  1. Explicit reading time in chartered accountancy examinations: perceptions of students and lecturers

    Explicit reading time in chartered accountancy examinations: perceptions of students and lecturers

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Accounting Research
    In 2011, the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) changed the structure of the first qualifying examination to include explicit reading time, during which candidates are given the scenario(s) of the paper without giving them the “Required” section. This...
  2. The quality of herbage ingested by cattle in rotationally grazed semi‐arid grassveld of the eastern Cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Oesophageal fistulated steers were used to sample herbage daily during periods of occupation on veld in good and moderate condition. Forage quality was assessed in terms of in vitro dry matter digestibility and digestible crude protein. The quality of herbage...
  3. Die invloed van planttyd en plantdigtheid op die duurte en tempo van graanvul van mielies (<em>Zea mays</em> L.)

    Die invloed van planttyd en plantdigtheid op die duurte en tempo van graanvul van mielies (<em>Zea mays</em> L.)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Die invloed van planttyd en plantdigtheid op die lengte van die graanvulperiode en die graanvultempo van mielies is in veldproewe ondersoek. Plantdigtheid het die periode en tempo van graanvul nie betekenisvol beïnvloed nie. Die graanvulperiode het betekenisvol toegeneem terwyl die...
  4. Effect of time and rate of nitrogen application on the malting quality of barley

    Effect of time and rate of nitrogen application on the malting quality of barley

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Field trials were conducted to determine the effect of time and rate of single and split applications of nitrogen on various malting parameters of barley. The effect of a single low nitrogen application of 50 kg Nha−1 at sowing was...
  5. Effect of a foliar application of paclobutrazol in autumn on the reproductive development of ‘Songold’ plum

    Effect of a foliar application of paclobutrazol in autumn on the reproductive development of ‘Songold’ plum

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A foliar application of paclobutrazol (1- (4-chlorophenyl) −4,4-dimethyl-2- (1,2,4- triazol-1-yl) pentan-3-ol) at 250 or 500 mg dm−3 a.i. in autumn, or late winter applications of dinitro-o-cresol oil emulsion (DNOC) in water at 3% v/v, increased the percentage of ‘Songold’ plum...
  6. Effect of planting time on yield and fruit size of open-planted strawberries in the Transvaal

    Effect of planting time on yield and fruit size of open-planted strawberries in the Transvaal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The effect of three planting times (fortnightly intervals) on strawberry cultivars Selekta, Tioga, Parfaite and Rolinda was studied for two seasons. There was no cultivar × planting time interaction, and the yield of all cultivars was significantly reduced from earlier...
  7. Thermal time bias in maize growth simulation due to mesoscale weather effects

    Thermal time bias in maize growth simulation due to mesoscale weather effects

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The effect of cold air advection on the estimates of daily thermal time with a base temperature of 8°C (DTT8), calculated using maximum and minimum screen temperatures (max./min. values), was examined. Screen temperature data for at least three maize-growing seasons...
  8. Simulation of main stem mature leaf area of maize

    Simulation of main stem mature leaf area of maize

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The accuracy of different models for simulating the area of mature leaves on the main stem (PLA) of maize using thermal time was investigated. The accuracy of sub-models for simulating the area of individual mature leaves (LAn) and the number...
  9. Calibration of CERES3 (Maize) to improve silking date prediction values for South Africa

    Calibration of CERES3 (Maize) to improve silking date prediction values for South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Silking which coincides with the mid-summer drought in South Africa, could have a significant negative effect on maize yield. Errors in the prediction of silking date could contribute to errors in kernel number simulation, and consequently to errors in yield...
  10. Effect of extending the early season potassium supply on young ‘Keisie’ canning peach trees on a sandy, infertile soil

    Effect of extending the early season potassium supply on young ‘Keisie’ canning peach trees on a sandy, infertile soil

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A field trial was carried out to investigate the effects of applying potassium (K), either in two equal parts at full bloom (FB) and 42 days after FB (2-way split); or as a 4-way split, commencing at FB, with three...
