THICK OR THIN SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 May 1914

THICK OR THIN SOWING. The quality of need which should he sown depends on ;i number of cir cumstances, such as character of the soil, its moisture, freedom from weeds, size, germinating power, age of the seed, and again on the time of sowing, the nature of the plant, method of sowing, depth, etc. All these factors have to he considered; but in general we think it may be said that seed is sown more often too thickly than the reverse, especially when the operation is performed by hand. It is a waste of seed, and, moreover, detrimental in so far as it tends to produce weakly plants, sub ject !o disease, and also to produce cereals that "lodge," a great source of loss to cereal growers. The ago of the seed is an important /actor. Old seed has lost some of its germinating power, so new seed should bo used. Grouchy Parent: No, sir, my daugh ter shall not marry you! Suitor: Tint your daughter wishes to, sir, and she told me just now that you would deny her nothing. Grouchy Parent: That, si...

LIME FOR THE SOIL. The nature of I lie lime used de pends upon the purpose l'er which il is required. Lime is applied to the soil for the following objects: - (a) To lighten heavy clays; lb) to sweet en sour soils; (c) to supply plant 100(1. In the first case, either unslack :".l lime (powdered quicklime), or quite freshly slacked lime is the. most, ef fective, the action on the clay being both of a mechanical and chemic.il nature, breaking up the colloidal clay particles "when the lime is slacked iu contact with the clay.

VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 May 1914

VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." Large crops are nut always prolit able crops, and the tinest looking ani mal does not. always give the largest net return, for generations we have been taught and urged to grow bigger crops, unmindful of the relation of in creased cost to increased production. The value of increased production al ways depends upon whether or not It i.s economically secured, i.e., upon whether the margin of profit an acre is increased or not. Another important factor always to be kept in mind is the relation which any part of the farm enterprise bears to the whole. A crop judged by it sell might be prolitable and yet the system might be unprofitable. For example, timothy bay might prove a good crop in any one year, or even two or three years, but eventually the yield must decline, because a system of farming with this crop alone would not be likely to maintain fer tility, so that the; system could not be called prolitable. On the other hand, clover might not prove to be a m...
