  1. Micropropagation <em>of Eucalyptus radiata ssp. radiata</em> Using Explants from Mature and Coppice Material

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Nodes from young field-grown coppice regrowth and branches of a mature tree of Eucalyptus radiata ssp. radiata were cultured on a MS medium containing BA and NAA. BA at 0,5 mg/ℓ and NAA at 0,01-0,1 mg/ℓ were most effective in...
  2. Soil water use and rooting depth of Italian ryegrass (<em>Lolium multiflorum</em> Lam.) in a small plot experiment

    Soil water use and rooting depth of Italian ryegrass (<em>Lolium multiflorum</em> Lam.) in a small plot experiment

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Italian ryegrass is planted mainly under irrigation in the summer rainfall region of South Africa. Irrigation practices are often based on the assumption that Italian ryegrass has an extremely shallow root system. A small plot experiment was conducted to ascertain...
  3. Rooting responses of guayule (<em>Parthenium argentatum</em> Gray) cuttings to hormone solutions

    Rooting responses of guayule (<em>Parthenium argentatum</em> Gray) cuttings to hormone solutions

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Vegetative propagation of selected guayule (Parthenium argentatum Gray), with elite qualities of vigorous growth and high latex yield, was Investigated. Rooting responses of guayule cuttings to treatment solutions of indole butyric acid (IBA), naphthalene acetamide (NA) and naphthalene acetic acid...
  4. Research note: The influence of applied nitrogen on the root development of <em>Lolium perenne</em> L. one year after establishment

    Research note: The influence of applied nitrogen on the root development of <em>Lolium perenne</em> L. one year after establishment

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The effect of different levels of applied nitrogen (N) (ranging from 120–720 kg N ha−1 a−1) on the root development of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) was examined at the end of the establishment year. Increasing levels of applied N...
  5. Propagating <em>Osyris lanceolata</em> (African sandalwood) through air layering: Its potential and limitation in Tanzania

    Propagating <em>Osyris lanceolata</em> (African sandalwood) through air layering: Its potential and limitation in Tanzania

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    Propagation of African sandalwood (Osyris lanceolata) by air layering (marcotting) was investigated at Sao Hill, Tanzania, aiming at providing an alternative propagation technique to the use of seeds or cuttings that germinate or root poorly. Air layers were initiated on...
  6. The effect of bottom heat on rooting <em>Pinus patula</em> and <em>Pinus elliottii x Pinus caribaea</em> stem cuttings in South Africa

    The effect of bottom heat on rooting <em>Pinus patula</em> and <em>Pinus elliottii x Pinus caribaea</em> stem cuttings in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    Five trials, testing the effect ofbottom heat on rooting, were set between January 1995 and December 1996 on P. patula and P. elliottii x P. caribaea cuttings as a method of improving root strike. In four out of five trials...
  7. Influence of the origin of stem cutting, season of collection and auxin application on the vegetative propagation af African Sandalwood (<em>Osyris lanceolata</em>) in Tanzania

    Influence of the origin of stem cutting, season of collection and auxin application on the vegetative propagation af African Sandalwood (<em>Osyris lanceolata</em>) in Tanzania

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    An investigation into the possibility of propagating O.lanceolata through stem cutting was carried out at Tanzania Tree Seed Agency, Iringa Zone, Tanzania. The aim was to test the potential of stem cuttings in providing an alternative/supplement to the use of...
  8. A review on the effects of donor maturation on rooting and field performance of conifer cuttings

    A review on the effects of donor maturation on rooting and field performance of conifer cuttings

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    The maturation and ageing effects of parent or donor plants have been reported to have both positive and negative influences on the performance of rooted cuttings. A general decline in rooting ability, root quality and speed of rooting in the...
  9. The effects of ontogenetic maturation in <em>Pinus patula</em> - Part 1: nursery performance

    The effects of ontogenetic maturation in <em>Pinus patula</em> - Part 1: nursery performance

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    The age at which parent or donor hedges reach ontogenetic maturity has frequently been cited as a debilitating factor in the production of conifer cuttings. This point varies between species and prevailing environmental conditions. Among other things, a lack of...
  10. Air layering and its potential in propagating <em>Uapaca kirkiana:</em> a fruit tree from the miombo woodland, Tanzania

    Air layering and its potential in propagating <em>Uapaca kirkiana:</em> a fruit tree from the miombo woodland, Tanzania

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    The potential to propagate Uapaca kirkiana through air layering was investigated at Igumbilo forest, Tanzania. The objective was to determine the effect of time of setting air layers and use of indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) to promote rooting. Air layers were...
