Soil Formation on the Namaqualand Coastal Plain
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2008-03)
The (semi-)arid Namaqualand region on the west coast of South Africa is wellknown for its spring flower displays. Due to the aridity of the region, soils research has lagged behind that of the more agriculturally productive ...
The concentration of selected trace metals in South African soils
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2007-12)
Trace elements occur naturally in soils, usually at low concentrations (<0.1% or <1000 mg kg-1 of the earth’s crust), as a result of weathering and pedogenic processes acting on the rock fragments from which soil develops ...
The effect of saline irrigation on selected soil properties, plant physiology and vegetative reproductive growth of Palsteyn appricots (Prunus armeniaca L.)
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
Approximately 45% of apricot tree plantings in South Africa are centered on Montagu, Koo and Barrydale in the Little Karoo. Below average production in this area could be ascribed to the deteriorating water quality of ...
