Farmers on approximately 75% of Limpopo smallholder schemes are currently engaging in land exchange transactions in a highly insecure and un-formalised institutional setup. Land exchange prevalence longer than two years was moderately associated with cropping intensity and strongly associated with commercialisation. This result has three important implications. First, it suggests that more land is utilised on the schemes when there is vibrant land-leasing activity. Secondly, schemes with a higher prevalence of long-term leasing seem to have a strong tendency to be more commercialised. Thirdly, the duration of the lease is significant, as neither single-season, nor annual leases yielded any positive associations, while those exchanges that were two years or longer, were associated with increased performance. These findings highlight the potential for longer-term land-exchange interventions to address the widespread low land utilisation on smallholder schemes, and to catalyse more commercially-oriented farming. An irrigation scheme typology was derived from the cluster analysis and was aligned to a contemporary irrigation farming typology. The key descriptors included technology type, purpose of farming and scheme management type. By matching scheme type to the farmer typology (or typologies), strategic decisions regarding technology choices for infrastructure, land, and water institutional interventions can be better informed. All schemes demand attention to the multiple factors required to achieve performance, not least water-tenure security, irrigation management organisational development, and infrastructure modernisation. Complexity was demonstrated by the finding that multiple factors contribute to success, and that there are many dimensions that change independently and have a cascading effect through the system in ways that are difficult to predict. Agricultural systems support to achieve productivity and profitability are essential for success. The research findings lead to the recommendation that, in addition, strategic planners must also consider the implications of the dominant factors of water-technology choices so that these are manageable, and the dynamics of farm-size change based on land exchange processes, in order to harness new opportunities to maximise irrigation scheme performance in future.]]> Tue 26 Mar 2019 12:07:00 SAST ]]> A comparative study of CERBER, MAKTUB and LOCKY Ransomware using a Hybridised-Malware analysis Tue 26 Mar 2019 10:16:19 SAST ]]> A study of malicious software on the macOS operating system Tue 26 Mar 2019 10:15:08 SAST ]]> Examination of teacher mediation and its impact on foundational reading skills in Grade-R classrooms in Namibia Tue 26 Mar 2019 10:14:12 SAST ]]> An investigation of the teaching of writing in Grade-9 English first-language classrooms: a case study of a selected government school in Namibia Tue 26 Mar 2019 10:13:04 SAST ]]> Expanding learning in clergy leadership formation in an Anglican Church Province in Southern Africa: a critical realist study Tue 26 Mar 2019 10:07:56 SAST ]]> Factors influencing survivorship of Portulacaria afra cuttings in restoration of degraded lands Tue 26 Mar 2019 10:03:55 SAST ]]> An Integrated Management System to reduce False Codling Moth, Thaumatotibia leucotreta (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) infested citrus fruit from being packed for export Tue 26 Mar 2019 10:03:14 SAST ]]> Climatic suitability of Dichrorampha odorata Brown and Zachariades (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae), a shoot-boring moth for the biological control of Chromolaena odorata (L.)

The performance evaluation of MIDAS compared with ANNs to reconstruct storm-time TEC over the African low- and mid-latitude regions showed that MIDAS and ANNs provide comparable results. Their respective mean absolute error (MAE) values were 4.81 and 4.18 TECU. The ANN model was, however, found to perform 24.37 % better than MIDAS at estimating storm-time TEC for low latitudes, while MIDAS is 13.44 % more accurate than ANN for the mid-latitudes. When their performances are compared with the IRI model, both MIDAS and ANN model were found to provide more accurate storm-time TEC reconstructions for the African low- and mid-latitude regions. A comparative study of the performances of EOF, NLRA, ANN, and IRI models to estimate TEC during geomagnetic storm conditions over various latitudes showed that the ANN model is about 10 %, 26 %, and 58 % more accurate than EOF, NLRA, and IRI models, respectively, while EOF was found to perform 15 %, and 44 % better than NLRA and IRI, respectively. It was further found that the NLRA model is 25 % more accurate than the IRI model. We have also investigated for the first time, the role of meridional neutral winds (from the Horizontal Wind Model) to storm-time TEC modelling in the low latitude, northern and southern hemisphere mid-latitude regions of the African sector, based on ANN models. Statistics have shown that the inclusion of the meridional wind velocity in TEC modelling during geomagnetic storms leads to percentage improvements of about 5 % for the low latitude, 10 % and 5 % for the northern and southern hemisphere mid-latitude regions, respectively. High-latitude storm-induced winds and the inter-hemispheric blows of the meridional winds from summer to winter hemisphere have been suggested to be associated with these improvements.]]> Tue 02 Apr 2019 15:48:57 SAST ]]> Investigating mathematical proficiency testing in Namibian school high stakes mathematics examinations: an exploratory study Tue 02 Apr 2019 11:49:40 SAST ]]> A hydrogeological investigation of Grahamstown, assessing both the dynamics and quality of the local groundwater system Thu 25 Apr 2019 12:04:09 SAST ]]> A local portrait of South African counselling psychologists’ endorsement of the values and scope of practice of their profession in relation to their career satisfaction Thu 25 Apr 2019 11:36:13 SAST ]]> Making meaning of reality television celebrities: the reception of South African Idol by young adults in Joza, Grahamstown Thu 25 Apr 2019 10:33:07 SAST ]]> Changes and continuities over time in the cultural significance of the Nyaminyami water spirit among the BaTonga people of northwestern Zimbabwe Thu 25 Apr 2019 10:12:08 SAST ]]> An Agile systems development approach for enhancing e-Government user adoption Thu 25 Apr 2019 09:37:10 SAST ]]> Evaluation of SNPs of G6PD, with regard to the 3D conformational, structural and stability alterations, in order to investigate the clinical implications and potential applications Thu 21 Feb 2019 15:04:46 SAST ]]> An assessment of amount, distribution and use of urban green spaces in small towns of the Eastern Cape Thu 21 Feb 2019 14:57:47 SAST ]]> Aiding the education agenda? the role of non-governmental organisations in learner performance and retention in Joza, Grahamstown, South Africa Thu 21 Feb 2019 14:31:20 SAST ]]> An assessment of amount, distribution and use of urban green spaces in small towns of the Eastern Cape Thu 21 Feb 2019 12:30:45 SAST ]]> Characterization of termite Trinervitermes trinervoides metagenome-derived glycoside hydrolases, the formulation of synergistic core enzyme sets for effective sweet sorghum and corncob saccharification, and their potential industrial applications Thu 17 Jan 2019 15:15:07 SAST ]]> L’entre-deux identitaire dans quelques oeuvres d’écrivains francophones “immigrantsˮ, “cas de Dany Laferrière, d’Alain Mabanckou, de Calixthe Beyala et de Lottin Wekapeˮ Thu 17 Jan 2019 10:28:06 SAST ]]> Language-in-education policy and language practices in Botswana primary schools: a case study of 3 schools Thu 13 Sep 2018 12:46:30 SAST ]]> Examining mathematical reasoning through enacted visualisation Thu 13 Sep 2018 10:35:19 SAST ]]> In-betweenness: a postcolonial exploration of sociocultural intergenerational learning through cattle as a medium of cultural expression in Mpembeni, KwaZulu-Natal Thu 13 Sep 2018 09:44:31 SAST ]]> Investigating and expanding learning across activity system boundaries in improved cook stove innovation diffusion and adoption in Malawi Thu 13 Sep 2018 09:37:31 SAST ]]> Biochemical characterization of the β-mannanase activity of Bacillus paralicheniformis SVD1 Thu 06 Sep 2018 16:05:15 SAST ]]> Inflation hedging with South African common stocks: a JSE sectoral analysis Thu 06 Dec 2018 15:43:14 SAST ]]> A sociological understanding of urban governance and social accountability: the case of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe Thu 06 Dec 2018 15:01:14 SAST ]]> A multi-threading software countermeasure to mitigate side channel analysis in the time domain Mon 26 Nov 2018 15:51:24 SAST ]]> Interaction between the root-feeding beetle, Longitarsus bethae (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) and the root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne javanica (Nematoda: Heteroderidae): Implications for the biological control of Lantana camara L.
