Breeding for disease resistance to the major foliar pathogens of dry beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) in South Africa.
Resistances to bean common mosaic virus, halo, common and Ascochyta blight, angular leaf spot, anthracnose and rust pathogens of beans in South Africa were combined by reverse dichotomous crossing. Full resistance to ...
The transformation of South African soya bean cultivars with a synthetic Basta resistance gene.
The development of a genetic engineering system for soya bean (Glycine max L.) is described in this thesis. Routine tissue culture regeneration systems were developed for South African cultivars of soya bean despite the ...

An investigation into the heritability of commercially important traits in a sugarcane population under dryland conditions.
Inheritance studies have previously been undertaken at the South African Sugar Association Experiment Station (SASEX) under irrigated conditions. Since most sugarcane is grown in South Africa under dryland (raingrown) ...
