The uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site has significant value including the natural and cultural value such as the production of water, the wilderness and eco-cultural tourism. Situated in the Province of ...
In vitro culture and genetic transformation of selected ancestral and commercial sugarcane germplasm.
Sugarcane is an economically important crop and its high demand has necessitated the use of biotechnology methods to produce and accelerate the production of desirable genotypes. One such method is genetic transformation. ...
The effect of the spatial scale of tree harvesting on woody seedling establishment and tree dynamic at Ongoye Forest Reserve.
Subsistence harvesting pressure in most African countries focuses on the small and mostly unreproductive trees found in the understorey stratum and can have potentially insidious ecological effects. Harvest intensities at ...
The impact of food aid on maize production in Swaziland.
The objective of the study was to provide empirical evidence on whether food aid leads to depressed domestic maize prices and reduced maize production in subsequent years in Swaziland. Similar impact studies have been ...
Measuring and validating food insecurity in Embo, using the food insecurity scale and index
Measurement of household food insecurity is needed to identify the magnitude of food insecurity and assess the impact of development interventions. However, there is no commonly agreed measure of household food insecurity. ...
Feasibility study of ionospheric tomography using HF radar
This thesis gives an outline of the ionosphere and studies that were conducted to investigate
Sensible heat flux under unstable conditions for sugarcane using temperature variance and surface renewal.
Increased pressure on the available limited water resources for agricultural production has a significant impact on sugarcane production. Routine monitoring of evaporation with reliable accuracy is essential for irrigation ...
