FARMING ON BUSINESS LINES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914

FARMING ON BUSINESS LINES. It is quite impossible in these days of keen competition, and with the high prices ruling for land, cattle, la bor, and all commercial commodities, to ignore the fact that if the daii'y farmer is to make the most of his labors, he must be in the position of knowing, with some degree of cer tainty, just what branch of his busi ness is, from year to year, the most profitable. How can disaster be avert ed if he goes on year after year utter ly ignorant, not only of how much he has made, or is making, from his dairy or other branches of his busi ness, but what is far worse, often not possessing a knowledge as to whether he is making money or losing it. That hundreds of farmers do not find them selves involved in serious financial difficulties is largely due to the pro ductiveness of the land and a tribute tt; their own hard-working industry. If the commercial man, faced 011 all sides with keen competition, carried on his business in the haphazard way the farme...

EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914

EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS. Every man must study his own soil and crop conditions. Experiment sta tions may practise from now until the end of time, and still not be able to answer the question for the individual ■farmer. Principles can be established, the needs of different crops can be learned, the composition of fertilisers can be determined, chemical and phy sical analyses may show wherein soils differ; but when it comes to the Question of the profitable use of fertil isers, each farm, each paddock must answer for' itself. That is, careful, intelligent and accurate experiments must be carried on by every farmer, j gardener, and orchardist who wishes to settle this point. In all fertiliser experimental work it is important that the land, used be as uniform in soil condition and previous manuring and cropping as can be procured. The size of plots may vary according to the nature of the crop from two square rods to one-tenth to one-third of an acre, or larger if desired. The larg...
