Overview

Several procedures have been developed for the evaluation of veld conditions in a variety of vegetation types in South Africa. These include both agronomic and ecologically based methods, about which there remains a great deal of controversy.

However, the urgent need for techniques which can be applied in practice, has recently prompted the recommendation of specific methods for the vegetation types representative of the major livestock producing areas of South Africa. These methods include:

  • Farm planning
  • Veld improvement and restoration
  • Veld condition assessment and monitoring
  • Cultivated pasture establishment and maintenance
