LIGHT FIG PULP. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1914

LIGHT FIG PULP. It has been ascertained that there is a splendid outlet for fig pulp. As a matter of fact, most of the pulp'produced in the State at the present time is of the dark heavy variety, and neither its flavor nor its color is comparable with that of the pulp from lig.ht figs. It is very probable that the good prices at present being realised for light fig pulp will continue, as the demand is at present much greater than the supply. Settlers who intend to go in for the planting of figs would do well to bear this fact in mind.

CO-OPERATIVE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

CO-OPERATIVE SOCIETY. Mr. A. E. Cook, president of the local Co-operative Society, states that the direc tors have been afforded every facility for the investigation of * the affairs of the Coastal Farmers' Co-operative Society, as recently promised by Mr. Meares when at Lee ton, and they are thoroughly satisfied that the big society would be in a better" position, by virtue of its well-established business, to handle produce, from the Areas more efficiently than the existing society. The directors have made a recommenda tion on these lines, and a meeting of the shareholders to consider the matter is to' be held on the 9th October, when a repre sentative of the Coastal Farmers' Society will be present. It is understood that Mr. Joyce, sub-manager of the society's Goulburn branch, has been appointed to represent the society on this occasion.

BROOM MILLET [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

BROOM MILLET A number of settlers are making ar rangements to plant areas of broom millet this year. Properly grown and prepared for market, broom millet should be a highly payable crop on the Irrigation Areas, and it is wise for settlers to get all the information possible for its grow ing and harrdling. The senior instructor, Mr. W. J. Allen, has a number of com prehensive pamphlets published recently by the Department of Agriculture. These he will be pleased to distribute amongst settlers who wish to have one. Information has just been received to the effect that some of last year's millet recently marketed by Messrs. Pryde Bros. & Howe, of Mirrool, realised the high price of £35 per ton. The trade con sidered the sample, which was of a bright color, free from crooked and discolored lots, was equal "to the best produced in Tamworth, Italy, or the United States. The fact that broom millet of this quality can be produced on the Areas should give confidence to other growers....

DREADNOUGHT BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

DREADNOUGHT BOYS. Several inquiries have been made from time to time by settlers regarding Dread nought farm lads, and information is now to hand from the Assistant Superintend ent of the Tourist Bureau to the effect that the London office of that organisa tion has advised him of the departure of about 16 Dreadnought lads whose ages range from 16 to 20 years. These lads have had training in market gardening for periods of up to four years. It seems an exceptional opportunity for settlers who aire djesiitous of obtaining skilled help in market gardening to do so, and any settler in that position is re quested to communicate with Mr. F. C. Govers, Assistant Superintendent, Immi gration and Tourist Bureau, Challis House, Sydney, when a further communi cation on the subject will no doubt be for warded. The lads were originally booked by the s.s. "Norseman," due to arrive in Sydney at the beginning of October, but as the vessel named has been chartered by the Admiralty in connection with...

NEXT EASTER SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

NEXT EASTER SHOW. It is the Commissioner's wish to make the representation of the Irrigation Areas at the next Easter Show the very best that it is possible to obtain, and with this end in view he has issued instructions that steps are to be taken forthwith in connection with the collection of suitable products. The instructors and other outdoor offi cers have been requested to keep an eye out for good produce, but anything set tlers can do in order to further the object in. view will be very greatly appreciated. A suggestion has been made that, if possible, an exhibit might be arranged of the produce from one particular farm. This, of course, would be a portion of the main exhibit, but it wowld tend to show the great range of production possible on the Areas. It is recognised that the growing and preparation of one farm ex hibit will require a considerable amount of labor and attention, and it is doubtful whether there is any settler at present in a. position to devote the necessai...

Experimental Plots. POTATOES JUST PLANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

Experimental Plots. POTATOES JUST PLANTED. The Department of Agriculture intends this year to carry out' a comprehensive series of experiments on the Irrigation Areas. Among the crops to be tested are potatoes, maize for grain, and fodder crops. In addition, a systematic series of experiments in the laying down o|f permanent pastures will be conducted, and various methods tried of improving lucerne growth on heavy soils. The potatoes have already been planted, and the folio-wing particulars of the individual experiments will no doubt be found of interest. An endeavor will be made during the season to keep in touch with the work, and to publish progress reports from time to time. It will be noticed that the whole of the experiments constitute variety and man urial trials : Potatoes.-P.

"KICKERS." [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

" KICKERS." A request has been preferred for a de finition of the word " kickers" used in the catechism published last issue. Let it be understood straight away that a " kicker^' is not one who voices- ia legitimate trouble or grievance. It is too much to hope that the working out of a great undertaking such as the Murrum bidgee Irrigation Scheme is to be free from minor troubles and worries tttiatl loom large in the eyes of the individual settler affected. . It is only right and proper that all such troubles should be ventilated. The Com missioner has made provision for their investigation, and both he and the Mana ger are always anxious to have them rec tified as soon as discovered. The " kicker" is . another class of man altogether. He waters too much, and blames the soil when his crop is a failure; he refuses to make a proper head ditch, and blames the grading when the water breaks away and causes trouble ; he wants bridges and other facilities provided in impossible places, and...

VEGETABLE EXPERIMENT PLOT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

VEGETABLE EXPERIMENT PLOT. In the last issue of the " Irrigation Re cord" the planting calendar of the Ex periment Vegetable Plot for the year 1914 15 was published under the instructions of the Commissioner. It will be interest ing, no doubt, to follow up the publica tion of the calendar by a few remarks on the work that has actually been done so far, and the results obtained. Cabbage.-A quantity of " Succession," " Winningstadt," and "St. John's Day" was sown in mid-March, and planted out about the middle of April. The Succes sion has given a very good, return, but the other varieties have practically been fail ures. The St. John's Day hearted very well indeed, buit they were all of small size, and although very palatable after cooking, they could not be classed as a marketable vegetable. The area covered by this experiment is practically an acre. A later sowing was made on June 30th, the young plants being transplanted on the 1st September. This experiment is half an acre in exte...

System in Fodder Growing. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

System in Fodder BY H R. ALEXANDER. At the present time all dairy farmers are actively engaged in the preparing of land and sowing of "fodder crops. On an irrigation area, where rainfall is not the fac . tor determining the success or otherwise of a crop, to maintain a regular and con sistent supply of fodders for the feeding of milking herds should be a comparatively easily-arranged matter. On the Areas, with water available every 15 days, a suc cession of crops can be assured through out the season, all that is wanted being a well-thought-out system methodically fol lowed in farming practice. What is Meant by System. By system I mean that at no time should a farmer be compelled to have the whole of his block under water at any one watering period. This can be ar ranged .by so subdividing his lucerne pad docks that he really has a successioii of paddocks following on each other at fort nightly intervals. He should also ar range other 'fodder croip's to supplement the lucerne, and b...

SOME SCARIFIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1914

SOME SCARIFIERS. Constant cultivation is the only straight and nar row path 'to success on an irrigation farm. How many try to find short cuts that do not exist? Nobody works harder for his money than the irri gationist who will not apply common-sense land the lessons of experience to the management of his farm. Nobody gets bigger or more certain interest on his labor than the man w'ho does. On the Irrigation Areas cows in bad condition are not necessarily a sign of the absence of system atic rotation on the farm, but it would be a good business risk to make a sporting wager on it. A man w'ho keeps his pigs'ty clean is generally able to get his cheques cashed without any trouble, but a dirty cow-yard and unpaid bills often go to gether. The impossibility of mixing oil and water is well known. Other things are just as hard to mix. Some settlers was'te time 'and money trying to be .farmers and men-around-town. The farms of such dual-purpose settlers, 'however, can seldom be pointed ou...
