Irrigation Practice. II. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 June 1913

Irrigation Practice. II. WHEN the irrigationist knows liow the watei* is held in the soil so plants can properly use it, he takes greater interest in his work. The scientist has helped in defining certain methods in regulating the movement of soil water. An agri culturist cannot be really successful in growing crops unless the soil moisture is regulated by tillage and drainage. . The balancing,- as it were, of the moisture content of the soil to enable plants to obtain just enough water to meet their requirements is a fundamental principle in agriculture. The method for holding the water in the soil is simple enough. The scientist has directed certain prac tice, and the farmer carries it out by .mechanical means. To interest the ir rigation farmer, and the agriculturist generally in this phase of a very im portant question, some remarks on the distribution of water in soils may be of service. w # # Water may be said to exist in the soil under three different conditions. These are de...

irrigation IRecorb [I, Published Fortnightly under tlie authority of the Commissioner for Irrigation at Leeton, New South Wales, Australia. Address all communications to THE EDITOR, " Irriga tion Record," Leeton, JST.S.W. THE intensive development of 300,000 acres of land now being proceeded with in the Riverina under the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Scheme has even a wider signi ficance for the State than the rural wealth likely to be won by the. irrigation farmers operating on the areas supplied .by the . water storage at Burrinjuck. Surrounding the irrigable sections are millions of acres of grazing land which lias produced the finest merino wool in the world. A tract of country remarkably, well adapted to sheep. Although fortunes'" have been made -in some cases by the individual grazier in this territory, there have been intermittent periods of drought which caused -great losses of stock. A few months of dry weather last year wiped out, it is estimated, about 5,000,000 sheep. At the ...

A Dairying Pasture. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1913

A Dairying Pasture. A RELIABLE pasture is a great advantage in the economy of the dairy farm. . It saves a great amount of labour in feed ing' dairy cows; and the dairyman who provides a good grazing field for his cattle will; no doubt, find it pays Avell. A. pasture of lucerne and prairie grass combined, described in the New Zealand Journal of Agriculture, by Mr. T. W. Lonsdale, is worth noting. With irri gation, it is practicable to grow grasses which would otherwise be impossible if depending on ordinary rainfall. As is well known, it is extremely difficult to graze dairy cat t'e on lucerne alone on account of tlie danger of hoven, or bloat. A mixture of prairie grass, sown with the lucerne, obviates this danger. . * * . # The pasture referred to comprised six acres of lucerne and prairie grass mixed. It was SOAVII in the autumn, ten pounds of lucerne seed, and twenty pounds of prairie grass per acre being used. The crop came away well, and .throughout the winter and early spring...

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1913

OATS may be sown up to end of July, and barley (for green fodder only). Bunyip' wheat could be sown this month where spring irrigation is practicable, with a good chance of success. Cabbages and cauliflowers should be transplanted, and seed sown for. later use. Tomato seed should be " sown under cover for trans planting in September. SAveet potatoes should be also planted under cover for earl y pi ants. Dry-f.armers shoul d h ave their fallow land ploughed now, so as to catch as much of the winter rain as possible. The soil kept mulched by cul tivation will hold a considerable amount of the water which falls between now and next autumn, when the. grain is sown. Successful grain-growing is only practicable in these localities, outside the irrigable areas, when the land is fallowed and cultivated as described. * * * Some months ago the Commissioner de cided to abolish, any further concessions to expert American irrigationists. Mr. Quinn, who is the representative of the New South Wale...

GRAZING STOCK, The question of grazing settlers stock on the area known as Five Bough Swamp was referred to. The President intimated that .he.would like the settlers to lease the area under notice, and look after it them selves as a common. They could pay a monthly rent for it, and charge agistment fees. They should form a committee for the purpose. It Avas decided that the Settlers' Associa tion confer with the manager on the subject. ' FILLING IN OLD CHANNELS.

Irrigation and Dry Areas. RAILWAY FACILITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1913

Irrigation and Dry Areas. RAILWAY FACILITIES. A PARTY of representative men from the districts to the northward of the irriga tion areas visited Leeton on the 13 th ultimo to confer with settlers as to the best means of securing' railway facilities between the irrigation districts and the dry-farming and grazing lands. The party comprised Messrs. J. H. Rowston (Pre sident Ariah Park Railway League), Railways and Proposed Railways in Association with the Irrigation Areas. A glance at the above map shows the railways and proposed railways to convey produce from the irrigable lands to the " dry " country. There is no doubt that the land comprising* the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Scheme must eventually be a potent factor in the more safe utilisation of the grazing lands which extend in all directions, from the sections to which water is now being applied to enable abundant crops to be raised without dependence on rainfall. The report in another part of this issue indicates a contentious ma...

Pigs and the Mixed Farm [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1913

Pigs and the Mixed Farm PIGS should be highly valuable to the settler determined on mixed farming. Pig-raising on. proper lines should be a money-making business where irrigation is practised. To make a financial success of the industry three factors are pro mihent(1) The right type qf pig. (2) Producing ' the best fodder for the economical feeding of the animals. (3) Convenience in disposing of the products 'through the Co-operative factory system. , . * * * Probably the most economical way to engage;-in pig-raising on these areas would be to specialise either in breeding' young pigs to sell to other farmers for. fattening as porkers or baconers, or to buy young pigs from someone else to feed for the factory. Both of these methods require special conditions, and it must depend upon the judgment of the settler as to which course to adopt. There is no doubt that when the industry gets going, some settlers, especially those dairying, will find that raising young pigs for other settler...
