  1. Production and quality norms of certain grass species for fodder flow planning: Pretoria area

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Four subtropical (Cenchrus. Digitaria, Anthephora and Sorghum) and two temperate grass species (Festuca. Agrotricum) were grown in a replicated field experiment at three levels of N application, with adequate P and K. Species were mown at 4‐, 6‐ and 8‐weekly...
  2. 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...
  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. Groei en produksie van ‘n aanal aangeplante weidings onder beweiding

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Die groei en produksie onder beweiding van ‘n aantal aangeplante weidings is met behulp van die verskilmetode bepaal. Uit die data verkry in die proef is dit duidelik dat indien daar besproeiingswater beskikbaar is, groen materiaal dwarsdeur die jaar voorsien...
  5. ‘n oorsig oor staande hooi in die sentrale grasveld met spesiale verwysing na <em>digit aria eriantha</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    ‘n Literatuuroorsig oor die gebruikswaarde van tropiese grassse as staande hooi, in die winter, word voorsien. Die invloed van klimaat op die keuse van spesies en bestuur van die grasse, gedurende die voorafgaande groeiseisoen, word bespreek. Meer onlangse gegewens oor...
  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. A preliminary survey of viruses in pasture grasses in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Little work has been done in South Africa on the incidence of viruses in pasture grasses. The aim of this work was to carry out a survey of virus infections of some of the economically‐important pasture grasses in South Africa...
  8. Effects of sowing rate on growth and protein contents of wall barley (<em>Hordeum murinum</em> L.) grown under Mediterranean conditions

    Effects of sowing rate on growth and protein contents of wall barley (<em>Hordeum murinum</em> L.) grown under Mediterranean conditions

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Accurate control of the seeding rate favours the establishment of a high-quality stand. Improper seeding rates waste seed and reduce potential yield. Our objective for this research is to determine the proper sowing rate for wall barley (Hordeum murinum L.)...
  9. Seasonal chemical composition of wall barley (<em>Hodreum murinum</em> L.) under sub-humid Mediterranean climate

    Seasonal chemical composition of wall barley (<em>Hodreum murinum</em> L.) under sub-humid Mediterranean climate

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Wall barley (Hodreum murinum L.) is an annual cool-season grass species that grows in areas with a Mediterranean climate. It has potential as a forage source in Jordan. The objective was to determine seasonal chemical composition of wall barley grown...
  10. Chemical composition and <em>in vitro</em> gas production of vetch (<em>Vicia sativa</em>) and some browse and grass species in northern Ethiopia

    Chemical composition and <em>in vitro</em> gas production of vetch (<em>Vicia sativa</em>) and some browse and grass species in northern Ethiopia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Chemical composition and in vitro gas production of vetch (Vicia sativa) and some browse and grass species from northern Ethiopia were investigated. Vetch (fresh cut) was sampled in September and vetch hay samples were taken in October both during the...
