  1. Screening for DIMBOA (benzoxazinone) concentration among South African inbred maize lines and sorghum cultivars

    Screening for DIMBOA (benzoxazinone) concentration among South African inbred maize lines and sorghum cultivars

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Twenty-seven popular South African inbred maize lines, four commercial maize cultivars, two sweet corn cultivars and two grain sorghum cultivars were screened by means of a rapid, semi-quantitative method to determine DIMBOA concentration. Significant differences were found between inbred lines...
  2. Damage caused by <em>Chilo partellus</em> (Swinhoe) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) to various cultivars of grain sorghum, <em>Sorghum bicolor</em> (L.) Moench

    Damage caused by <em>Chilo partellus</em> (Swinhoe) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) to various cultivars of grain sorghum, <em>Sorghum bicolor</em> (L.) Moench

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Grain sorghum cultivars differed significantly in yield response to natural Chilo partellus infestations over a period two seasons. These differences were ascribed to cultivar characteristics of which differences in length of growing season requirements were the most important. Differences in...
  3. Sorghum malting quality as affected by availability of suitable cultivars

    Sorghum malting quality as affected by availability of suitable cultivars

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Malting quality of grain samples of commercially available malting class sorghum cultivars was determined over five seasons and three localities for each season. The number of cultivars included in the National Sorghum Cultivar Trials has declined in recent years. The...
  4. Determining milling performance of sorghum cultivars by means of abrasive decortication and roller milling techniques

    Determining milling performance of sorghum cultivars by means of abrasive decortication and roller milling techniques

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Although roller milling has been successfully applied to produce sorghum meal, the South African sorghum milling industry mostly uses abrasive decortication milling. The first objective of this study was to develop a laboratory-scale roller milling technique for a scaled-down roller...
  5. Die produksie en kwaliteit van verskillende voersorghum‐ en Babala kultivars in die wes‐Transvaal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The production and quality of different fodder sorghum and Babala cultivars in the western Transvaal. A number of sorghum cultivars are available commercially, and periodically some cultivars are added while others are withdrawn from the market. The potential yield figures...
  6. Assessment of aluminium tolerance in maize using a rapid screening procedure

    Assessment of aluminium tolerance in maize using a rapid screening procedure

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Routine testing for Al tolerance requires that screening procedures be both rapid and simple. Growth-chamber techniques, developed in the USA, show considerable promise in this regard and were used in this study to compare the Al tolerance of 10 maize...
  7. Recovery of grain sorghum [<em>Sorghum bicolor</em> (L.) Moench] from atrazine and cyanazine phytotoxicity

    Recovery of grain sorghum [<em>Sorghum bicolor</em> (L.) Moench] from atrazine and cyanazine phytotoxicity

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Recovery of growth following atrazine and cyanazine toxicity and the effect on subsequent grain yield of sorghum were studied in nutrient solutions in two separate experiments. In Experiment I, concentrations of atrazine and cyanazine were decreased at weekly intervals based...
  8. Alachlor-geïhduseerde veranderinge in sekere membrane van <em>Sorghum bicolor</em> (L.) Moench-plante

    Alachlor-geïhduseerde veranderinge in sekere membrane van <em>Sorghum bicolor</em> (L.) Moench-plante

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Sekere ultrastrukturele veranderinge veroorsaak deur alachlor (α-chloor-2′, 6′-diëtiel-N-metoksimetielasetanilied) in graansorghumplante is ondersoek. Elektronmikro- skoopmikrograwe het aangetoon dat disintegrering van vakuoolmembrane, kernmembrane en omhullingsmembrane van chloroplaste voorgekom het by alachlorbehandelde plante.
  9. Leaf water retention of excised leaves as a measure of drought resistance in grain sorghum (<em>Sorghum bicolor</em> L. Moench) genotypes

    Leaf water retention of excised leaves as a measure of drought resistance in grain sorghum (<em>Sorghum bicolor</em> L. Moench) genotypes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The objective of these experiments was to evaluate the usefulness of the excised leaf water retention capability (ELWRC) technique for screening grain sorghum genotypes for drought resistance. Seven genotypes were planted in a randomized block consisting of four replications. The...
  10. 'n Evaluering van die volumetermetode om aggregaatstabiliteit van 'n vertisol te kwantifiseer

    'n Evaluering van die volumetermetode om aggregaatstabiliteit van 'n vertisol te kwantifiseer

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Die 0–10 mm laag van twee proefpersele van 'n vertiese grond waarop graansorghum sonder enige bewerking met behoud van 'n stoppeldeklaag (GBS) en met die Stoppel verwyder (GBG), verbou is, is gemonster. Grond- koolstofinhoud was 1,82% en 1,15% onderskeidelik. Massas...
