Comparative analysis of molecular and physiological responses of two canola genotypes to drought stress
(University of the Western Cape, 2016)
Food security has always been one of the priority concerns in Africa, and it is mostly threatened by drought stress due to climate change. Drought-induced stress is one of the serious limiting factors of plant production, ...
A biochemical and proteomic analysis of sugargraze sorghum under hyperosmotic stress
(University of the Western Cape, 2015)
Sugargraze is a moderately drought tolerant sweet sorghum hybrid which is ideal for grazing, winter stand over and pit silage. A major advantage that Sugargraze has over other forages is its very high sugar content which ...
Impact of vanadium stress on physiological and biochemical characteristics in heavy metal susceptible and tolerant Brassicaceae
(University of the Western Cape, 2013)
There is an influx in heavy metals into soils and ground water due to activities such as increased mineral mining, improper watering and the use of heavy metal contaminated fertilizers. These heavy metals are able to ...
Methylgyoxal signalling in Phaseolus vulgaris under phosphate deficiency
In this study, we observed that phosphate (P) deficiency stunted plant growth and produced plants with poor morphological characteristics (yellow and small leaves). Furthermore, we treated plants with 0.8 mM (control) and ...
Influence of a selected endophyte consortium on salinity responses in Medicago sativa
(University of Western Cape, 2022)
Salinity is one of the major limiting factors to crop production, which consequently contributes to the risk of reduced food security. Among other factors, food security depends on availability of sufficient and nutritious ...
