BROKEN MOWING MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

BROKEN MOWIN& MACHINES. ' On travelling round the Areas the in structors have noticed several setters in difficulties with broken mowing machines and, strange to say, none of them seem to have any id^a of the exact cause of the trouble. Young green lucerne, more espe cially if it be first year growth, is very soft and sappy and, when cut with a mowing machine, the, sap with which the green stuff is so plentifully supplied gathers between the blades and the fingers of the mower and the friction causes it to gum. This gum gets so bad that the knife will practically clog to the finger board, the result being that the heel of the knife is very often broken, to the dis gust of the farmer. The trouble can easily be avoided by having a little wateir handy, and of this there should be no lack on <an irrigation area. The knife should be periodically moistened, and it will be found that by this means it will be prevent=d from jam ming. It is rather surprising that the agent...

General Notes. THE SCHOOLS. , Removals.-Changes have taken place; in the staff of the Leeton Public School. By the removal of Mr. R.

The next on the list is a theoretical examination for the cookery class, which is billed for the 7th December. The juvenile cooks are now beginning to get a little anxious, and to wonder whether they will be able to serve up sufficient information on that date to curry favor with the examiners and turn the currents of their ire.

Vegetables. WHAT NARRANDERA GROWERS ARE DOING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

Vegetables. WHAT NARRANDERA GROWERS ARE DOING. The almond-eyed sons of Ham have al ways been noted for the remarkable success they have achieved in the art of vegetable growing. Most Britishers are prone to put this success down to an inordinate love of hard work. There is no doubt something in this contention, but not everything. A recent visit to the Chin ese market gardens at Narrandera has re suited in a certain amount of information being obtained which goes to show that the credit of the success being achieved there is not so much due to hard work as to intelligent work and a proper apprecia tion of the methods to be adopted in or der to catch the most profitable markets. In regard to tomatoes, for example, the Narrandera gardeners are picking fruit now for which they are receiving no less than 25/ per ca9e. Their soil is not nearly so rich as that on the Irrigation Areas; in fact, it is nothing more thanja fine grey clay with a certain mixture of sand. It has, of course, been...

Lucerne Hay and Chaff. THEIR MAKING, HANDLING, AND MARKETING (Continued from November 2 issue.) Lucerne Silage. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

Lucerne Hay and Chaff. THEIR MAKING, HANDLING, AND ' MARKETING By F DITZELL, Assistant Inspector of Agriculture in the " Agricultural Gazette of N.S.W." (Continued from November 2 issue.* Lucerne Silage. Where the conditions, as a result of a wet season, are too moist for the proper curing of the spring, or any other cut, the lucerne crop may, if desired, be con verted into silage. For this purpose the crop should be cut as soon as it cojn mences to flower, or is in the right stage for .cutting for. hay, while it is green and succulent, and should be raked directly behind the mower and hauled to the silo, pit, or stack as the case may be, as quick ly as possible. The big advantage of con verting lucerne into silage in a wet season is that it may be cut and ensiled while wet with rain or dew, and will make good silage. Silage is an excellent feed for dairy cattle, lambing ewes, etc. Any very weedy cut of lucerne may also be treated in this manner. Shrinkage in Weight of Hay. When gre...

Complaints have be'en madd to the manager that the depredations of goats are becoming a serious matter to orchard ists, and the question has been asked as to whether goats should be allowed on the ir rigation areas.

Lucerne Between Fruit Trees Views from Many Quarters. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

Lucerne Between Fruit Trees Views from Many Quarters. Some time ago a suggestion was made to the Commissioner that the man on the small block might grow a considerable amount of lucerne between his fruit trees without injury to the trees themselves. The suggestion was that in the middle of the space between each row of trees a strip of lucerne might be planted and four permanent water-ways left, the lucerne seed being carefully drilled in a'ong the length of the strip and allowed to come u;p with the winter rain. A strip 6ft. or 7ft. wide along either side of the trees would be left unplanted. It was definite ly' stated by the gentleman who made this suggestion that, it would be found that the trees wou'd thrive better arid pro duoe superior crops with the lucerne grow ing between them than without it, espe cially if the lucerne were well manured, once a year, as it should be. It was fur ther stated that even if the lucerne gradu ally spread closer to the trees as they in creased in...

A Cannery Credo. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

A Cannery Credo. 1. I believe in a State-owned Canning Factory, therefore I voted for the erection of one at Leeton. 2. I believe that it will prove a paying proposition, and that settlers should, do all in their power to make it go from the jump. 3. I believe that a large output is essential since it will ensure low cost of production and also give a1 guarantee to customers . that their requirements will always be provided for, and I hereby pledge my self to plant vegetables to keep the cannery going till the fruit comes in. 4. I believe that vegetable growing for the Can nery will be a profitable occupation for every settler who is prepared to de vote a fair proportion of his time and attention to the work. 5. I believe that the Areas will grow most, if not ail,, of the canning varieties of veget ables when planted at the proper time, ' and I intend to see to it that my plots are planted right. 6. I believe that the Australian farmer or veget able grower is at least equal in intel...

Rotation Fodders. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

Rotation Fodders. BY H. R. ALEXANDER. By the time these notes appear har vesting operations on the Areas will have been practically completed. Taken gen erally, the crops have been well above the average, in fact there have been some re markably fine crops grown on the Areas this year. After the harvesting, when the crops are stowed away in the sheds or stacks no time should be lost in get ting the plough to work in the stubble fields. It should be remembered always that the more of this stubble that can be ploughed in, the more improved will be the physical condition of the soil.' The constant ploughing in of stubble will re sult in many of the stiffer soils bec6ming more friable and water absorbent; after they have been cropped and manured ju diciously for- a few years. For this rea son every opportunity should be taken of incorporating in the soil all the humus making material available. As already advised in these columns, December has in the past proved a most suitable time for...

THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

THE FLOWER GARDEN. By Jas. T. Dickson. We are mow entering upon the worst period of the year for gardening-the mid summer season. With the exception of keeping the plants well watered, very little can be done. At this time of the year the loss by evaporation from the soil by transpiration from the leaves of plants is very gre/at. To check this, and thus conserve to*-the fullest extent the water applied, must be now the aim of 'every flower-gardener. Soil mulching by sur face cultivation will largely effect this ob ject, so will top-dressing with well-rotted manure, but mulching with straw or dried grass will prove even' more effective. By these means, waterings wi'1 be rendered less frequent. The soil beneath the mulch should bie stirred from time to time to prevent undue caking. But even in this hot season provision should be made for a succession of an nuals. All those previously mentioned may still be sown: one other that should certainly be sown now is the cosmos. It will re-pay...
