  1. Retention of festival volunteers: Management practices and volunteer motivation

    Retention of festival volunteers: Management practices and volunteer motivation

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Research in Hospitality Management
    Many volunteers in different festival organisations within the hospitality industry begin with great excitement, but slowly lose interest. This might be due to poor volunteer management practices that result in decreased motivation among volunteers, and with the consequences of them...
  2. Relationship between cation exchange capacity, clay content and water retention of Highveld soils

    Relationship between cation exchange capacity, clay content and water retention of Highveld soils

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Water in the soil is held by capillary and adsorption forces. These forces are mainly a function of clay content and mineralogy. To neglect the influence of clay mineralogy when estimating the water-holding properties of soil, implies that only a...
  3. Empinese verwantskappe tussen veldkapasiteit en sekere fisiese grondeienskappe

    Empinese verwantskappe tussen veldkapasiteit en sekere fisiese grondeienskappe

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Veldkapasiteit (VK) is in situ bepaal op verskeie gronde in Wes- Kaapland. Grondtekstuur het gewissel van sand tot sandklei. Veldkapasiteit is op vyf dieptes bepaal en het gevarieer van 4,9% tot 27,2% op massabasis. Matrikspotensiaal by VK het gewissel van...
  4. An evaluation of the problem of volunteer ryegrass in seed production

    An evaluation of the problem of volunteer ryegrass in seed production

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    This investigation was conducted to establish the degree and means of eliminating unwanted volunteers of Lolium multiflorum from fields used for seed production of a cultivar of the same species. This information is necessary in order to make recommendations with...
  5. 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...
  6. Estimation of soil water retention from clay content and cation exchange capacity values of soils

    Estimation of soil water retention from clay content and cation exchange capacity values of soils

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Soil water characteristics can be estimated accurately from the clay content and cation exchange capacity (CEC) values of soils. The clay with its very large adsorption surface and CEC which reflects the negative charge of clays, is jointly responsible for...
  7. The effect of soil compaction on the water retention characteristics of soils in forest plantations

    The effect of soil compaction on the water retention characteristics of soils in forest plantations

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A study was carried out to evaluate the relative effects of soil compaction on the water retention characteristics of a range of soils in forest plantations in the summer rainfall regions of South Africa. In all cases compaction resulted in...
  8. Evaluation of sorghum inbred lines for milling quality

    Evaluation of sorghum inbred lines for milling quality

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Fourteen sorghum inbred lines and one sorghum variety were evaluated for qualitative parameters relating to milling quality. Grain hardness, flour yield, flour particle size and alkali water retention capacity criteria were measured. These quality criteria directly influence acceptability of newly...
  9. Retention of applied phosphorus by the benchmark soils of Lesotho and quantification of their phosphorus retention indices

    Retention of applied phosphorus by the benchmark soils of Lesotho and quantification of their phosphorus retention indices

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    This study was conducted with the objective of determining and quantifying the capacity of Lesotho's benchmark soils to retain applied P. The soils were incubated with a range of P levels for a period of 42 days, whereafter P retention...
  10. Relations between phosphorus retention parameters and some other properties of benchmark soils in Lesotho

    Relations between phosphorus retention parameters and some other properties of benchmark soils in Lesotho

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The benchmark soils of Lesotho are characterized by high P retention and this aspect should be accommodated in fertilization programmes. This together with long procedures for determination of P retention parameters and a lack of information on the relations between...
