  1. High level of initial default among smear positive pulmonary tuberculosis in eThekwini health district, KwaZulu-Natal

    High level of initial default among smear positive pulmonary tuberculosis in eThekwini health district, KwaZulu-Natal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Infectious Diseases
    In this study, initial tuberculosis (TB) default was measured in clinics in a district with a high incidence of TB. A retrospective review of TB case identification registers in 2007 found 4049 (9.0%) new smear positive pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) cases...
  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. Leaf scorch on <em>Pennisetum clandestinum</em> dryland pastures induced by liquid urea ammonium nitrate fertilizer

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Transmission electron (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) demonstrated that the application of liquid urea ammonium nitrate (UAN 32) fertilizer, in concentrated form, to dryland pastures resulted in leaf scorch and subsequent necrosis, irrespective of the level and concentration of...
  4. Morphogenesis of <em>Malus domestica</em> cv. Starking flower buds

    Morphogenesis of <em>Malus domestica</em> cv. Starking flower buds

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Differentiation of reproductive buds of the Starking apple (Malus domestica) was studied by scanning electron microscopy. Differentiation of reproductive structures was initiated during the first week of January when the shoot apex flattened. In terminal flower primordia, sepal primordia were...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
