Organic wheat production is seen as a way of spreading risk because it is a niche market that can obtain higher prices. However, there is uncertainty about the potential of the organic wheat industry in South Africa. For more information, contact:...
The Allelopathic Potential of Rye Grass and Important Rotational Crops in the Winter Rainfall Area of the Western Cape
The Effect of Nitrogen (N), Soil Temperature, Soil Moisture, Soil Reaction and Day Length on the Growth and Production of Ryegrass and Clover under Controlled Conditions at Elsenburg
Four rates of fertiliser nitrogen (0, 50, 100 and 150kg N/ha) are tested in combination with four factors (soil temperature, soil moisture, soil reaction and day length) as separate experiments: N rate and soil temperature (6, 12 and 18 oC) N rate...

The Influence of a Strategic Nitrogen (N) Application on the Dry Matter (DM) Production of Ryegrass and Clover in a Perennial Ryegrass-Clover Pasture under Irrigation
Different rates of fertilizer nitrogen (0, 50, 100 and 150kg N/ha) are applied in April, June, July, August and September (as a single application) and the effect of these treatments on dry matter production, botanical composition and the quality of a...

The Influence of the Method of Topdressing Fertiliser Phosphorus (P) to Established Kikuyu at the Outeniqua Research Station
Five P-rates (0, 40, 80, 120 and 160 kg P/ha) are applied as topdressings (applied to the soil surface and irrigated into the root zone or mixed with the top 10cm soil through rotovator action). Dry matter production and soil-P levels are recorded....
