  1. 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...
  2. Screening of topical sterilants for shoot apex culture of <em>Acacia mearnsii</em>

    Screening of topical sterilants for shoot apex culture of <em>Acacia mearnsii</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    The surface sterilisation procedure is of integral importance to any micropropagation technique. This process should do the least amount of plant damage, whilst reducing microbial contamination to an acceptable level. The objective of this research was to investigate alternative sterilisation...
  3. Clonal propagation of <em>Pterocarpus santalinoides</em> L'Hér. ex DC.: the effect of substrate, cutting type, genotype and auxin

    Clonal propagation of <em>Pterocarpus santalinoides</em> L'Hér. ex DC.: the effect of substrate, cutting type, genotype and auxin

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Pterocarpus santalinoides is a multipurpose tree species, native to Africa and South America. However, excessive pruning for fodder is jeopardising its seed production leading to poor regeneration in the Sahel region. Efficient vegetative propagation techniques may overcome this concern. To...
  4. Genetic variation in survival, growth, and stem form of <em>Pinus leiophylla</em> in Brazil and South Africa and provenance resistance to pitch canker

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Hemisphere Forestry Journal
    Pinus leiophylla is a relatively common pine that occurs in the mountains of western and central Mexico. Between 1987 and 1990, Camcore, North Carolina State University, sampled 11 populations and 309 mother trees of the species to determine patterns of...
  5. Propagation of <em>Hypoxis hemerocallidea</em> by inducing corm buds

    Propagation of <em>Hypoxis hemerocallidea</em> by inducing corm buds

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    African potato is facing rapid decline of wild populations due to large-scale harvesting, necessitating efficient means of propagation. Propagation of African potato is difficult due to seed dormancy and the species does not naturally propagate easily from corms. This study...
  6. Root Initiation in <em>Ocotea bullata</em> (Burch.) Baill. Cuttings

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Ocotea bullata (Burch.) Baill. is known for its difficulty in propagation from cuttings. This preliminary study investigated the potential of ‘Rockwool’ as a rooting medium as compared to the more conventional bark, sand, mixtures of these two, and coir. It...
  7. Rapid vegetative propagation of pineapples by crown sectioning

    Rapid vegetative propagation of pineapples by crown sectioning

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Pineapples can be rapidly multiplied and propagated by means of crown sections in a peatmoss and vermiculite mixture (2:1). Each section can produce a new plantlet within 65 days and the development of dormant buds may be promoted by the...
  8. Kompetisie tussen koring (<em>Triticum aestivum</em> L.) en <em>Bromus diandrus</em> I. Invloed op vegetatiewe groei

    Kompetisie tussen koring (<em>Triticum aestivum</em> L.) en <em>Bromus diandrus</em> I. Invloed op vegetatiewe groei

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Die doel van hierdie studie was om die kompetisievermoë van koring (Triticum aestivum L.) en Bromus diandrus Roth, te vergelyk in terme van vegetatiewe groei in veldproewe. Die proewe is ontwerp as 'n verpla- singsmodel met sewe populaslesamestellings (behandelings) en...
  9. Die fitotoksiese eienskappe van koring-strooi en die invloed daarvan op opkoms, vegetatiewe groei en opbrengs van koring (<em>Triticum aestivum</em>)

    Die fitotoksiese eienskappe van koring-strooi en die invloed daarvan op opkoms, vegetatiewe groei en opbrengs van koring (<em>Triticum aestivum</em>)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Die vrystelling van allelopatiese stowwe as ontbindingspro- dukte van koringstrooi kan swak plantegroei en opbrengs van koring veroorsaak. 'n Glashuisstudie is oor drie jaar uitgevoer om die opkoms, vegetatiewe groei en opbrengs van koring (kultivar SST66 en Palmiet) te ondersoek...
  10. Reaksie van twee lentekoringkultivars op stikstof- en swaelbemesting in die Swartland. I. Vegetatiewe groei, opname en konsentrasie van stikstof en swael in die vegetatiewe plant

    Reaksie van twee lentekoringkultivars op stikstof- en swaelbemesting in die Swartland. I. Vegetatiewe groei, opname en konsentrasie van stikstof en swael in die vegetatiewe plant

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Die belangrikheid van die korrekte N: S verhouding het die vraag laat ontstaan of 'n wanbelans tussen N en S nie gedeeltelik 'n bydrae tot die swak benuttingsdoeltreffendheid van N by hoë N-bemestings in die Swartland kan lewer nie. 'n...
