Ecophysiological studies and tree manipulation for maximisation of yield potential in avocado (Persea americana Mill.)
Tree fruit crops generally consist of scion and rootstock components, which through interactive synergism affect tree performance. Coupled with tree architecture, sink/source relationships (both spatial and temporal), ...
Aspects of avocado fruit growth and development : towards understanding the 'Hass' small fruit syndrome.
Persea americana Mill. cv. Hass is predisposed towards producing a high proportion of undersized fruit. Reasons for phenotypically small 'Hass' fruit are obscure, but it does appear to be aggravated by adverse growing ...
Some aspects of water relations on avocado Persea americana (Mill.) tree and fruit physiology.
The effect of long-term irrigation on water relations of 'Fuerte' avocado trees, and the consequences for fruit ripening and physiology, particularly physiological disorders, were studied. Four irrigation regimes were ...
Plant hormone homeostasis and the control of 'hass' avocado fruit size.
The 'Hass' avocado produces two distinct phenotypically different populations of fruit, i.e. normal and small fruit. The small fruit variant is characterized by early seed coat senescence that results in arrested growth, ...
A multi-factor study of cabbage production in the Umlaas River valley.
A research and extension programme monitored 59 cabbage crops and many factors associated with cabbage production in the Umlaas River Valley of KwaZulu-Natal, from July 1991 - June 1993. A large data bank was developed, ...
