£1000 FROM A HA[?] CROP. A Yanco Farmer's Return. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

£1000 FROM A HAT CROP. A Yanco Farmer's Return. In view of the extreme dryness of the season in many portions of the State and the poor returns which many of our wheat farmers will consequently have to put up with, tlhe following inform at.'on, obtained last month from Mr. J. A. Alexander, who has gone in largely for the production of wheat for hay or grain, whichever paid him better, should prove of value. Last year Mr. Alexander, who, with his father in-law, works two 50-acre blocks in con junction, planted 90 acres with various wheats, and he cut for chaff 232 tons. The season was a fairly gqod one, and only one irrigation was given-on the 5th Sep tember. His net return last year was £500, plus sufficient seed for planting the farm the following season. As a matter of fact, Mr. Alexander is a rather keen wheat experimentalist, and he decided to sell the seed he had saved and plant vari ous varieties of other wheats this year. His results are interesting, more particu larly as he ...

HIGHER EDUCATION The Agricultural High School. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

HIGHER EDUCATION The Agricultural High School. It will be remembered that. at. a reoent Settlers' Meeting the matter of the pro: vision of facilities for secondary educa tion on the irrigation arcias was fully dis cussed in the presence of the District In spector of Public Schools. It was point ed out that at-the present time there were only eight boys at the Leeton school do ing the first year's work of a superior pub lic school course, and this fact did not show a very great demand for advanced instruction. A considerable amount of correspondence has, however, passed be tween the Commissioner and the educa tional authorities sines that date, with the result that on 4th instant a letter was re ceived from the Under-Secretary and Director of Education, stating that it was proposed upon the erection of a ne;w school building to set apart a room for science courses with a definite bearing on agricul ture. Mr. Board went on to suggest that possibly arrangements might then be made for o...

Soil Studies. (Continued from previous issues.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

Soil Studies. BY H. J. BRAUND. (Continued from previous issues.) Dsnitrification.-In a previous para graph the positively harmful effect of waterlogging the soil by excessive irriga tion or puddling and compacting was al luded to. We now come to consider in greater detail one of the most serious ef fects of such waterlogging. Working hand in hand with excessive watering of the soil by careless irrigators in injuring the farm must be mentioned that of "want of cultivation." These two factors are, in the writer's experience, the most vital- points to be remembered by irriga tionists. Nitrification is a life-giving pro-. cess, whereas on the other hand dentrifica tion is truly death-dealing. Both pro cesses are dependent on bacterial activity, but of two totally different kinds. The class of bacteria upon the activity of which nitrification depends are termed aerobic, or bacteria which require a free supply of air for their welfare. Those re sponsible for denitrification, on the other ...

SOME TOMATO TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

SOME TOMATO TROUBLES. In a recent issue of tin "Irrigation Re cord,^ an article was published on toma to culture, specially referring to c-erta'n troubles which affect the proper cultiva tion of the vegetable. A little more ad vice on the same subject is now given. Apparently there are still other pests to be guarded against. Tomato Wetevils. An inquirer recently asked the Mel bourne "Herald" for information as to the best method of dealing with certain in sects like beetles, which were causing de struction amongst his tomato plants. He stated that he could only find them at night with the aid of a lantern, and when disturbed they fail to the ground and do not move. Owing to this fact it was very hard to deal with them. They ap parently did great damage to the toma toes, the stems of seedlings and the leaves of larger plants being riddled in a single night. In reply, the paper referred to stated that the insects causing the7"damage were known as tomato weevils. They were discovered ...

How to Establish a Vineyard. AND THE GRAPES TO GROW. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

How to Establish a Vineyard. AND THE GRAPES TO GROW. Mr. Blunno had something of interest to say at ' LeetoinHreeently, on this subject, and his remarks were amplified at the conclusion of his address in answers that he gave to questions asked. In the following notes the answers to questions have been printed as though the questions themselves had been asked during the lecture itself. We will, it is hoped, keep the information under the various heads more together and therefore readi'.y available for reference purposes. Starting a Vineyard. No vines can give really good results unless the soil is well and deeply disturb ed. The breaking up of stiff ground to a depth of at least 18in. becomes really indispensable if the vineyard is formed on phylloxera resistant stocks. The success of those stocks in the county of Cumber land is essentially due to the splendid preparation of the ground, which in that district is trenched from 22in. to 26in There the top soil is put at the bottom, and...

CHAFF AND BINDER TWINE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

CHAFF AND BINDER TWINE. At this time of the year,'when numbers of settlers are. making arrangements for the chaffing of their hay crops, it is sea sonable to give a warning on the import ance of seeing that all binder twine is re moved b 2 fore the hay is-put through the cutter. The necessity, of drawing atten tion. to this matter..has..been proved by the fact that. chaff-from. at least one of the best crops in the area was delivered at the Commissioner's store, Yanco Siding, with all the binder twine cut up in it. This may have been the fault either of the settler or of the man doing the cut ting,, but in either case the matter is one of such importance that it is brought pro minently before settlers in this way, so as to ensure their thorough realisation of the damage they are doing to themselves and to the area generally by not exercising reasonable care in this direction

It is pointed out that an effort is being made to distribute the sows purchased amongst as many settlers as possible*. It is a case of "first come first served" to a very great extent, although settlers understand that sows will only be allotted to men who can give a reasonable guarantee that they will be properly fed and otherwise cared tor. Applications should be made with the 'east possible de lay.

BEES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

'BEES. . . - t There is no doubt that bee keeping is a very good pot boiler properly managed. Mr. Bassett, who is perhaps the largest apiarist on the Areas at the present time, states that his return last year was more than satisfactory. It is not anticipated that every beekeeper could net as much as Mr. Bassett did last year, seeing that he followed the flowering river gum with his bees, and most settlers would have to be content with what honey their bees could obtain on the settlement. There; are, how ever, considerable areas of lucerne now well established and some of this is always more or 'ess in flower. Lucerne honey is one of the best of honeys, and con sequently the bees should always do fairly well. There is room for a lot more1 hives on the Areas at present, and as £1 per hive could be reckoned on year in year out the matter is worth the.. consideration of a great number of settlers. .

COMMISSIONER'S NURSERIES, LEETON. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1914

COMMISSIONER'S NURSERIES, LEETON. Attention is drawn to the advertisement appearing in this issue dealing with horti cultural stock for sal'3 at the Commission er's nursery. During1 the past three sea sons the stock grown at the nursery has proved to be of exceptional quality. It has been hardy, well grown, and absolute ly free from disease of any kind. The fact of its being produced in this district means that it is thoroughly acclimatised, and from the results achieved by thos3 settlers who have secured trees in the past it is apparent that this consideration is an important one. The strong, healthy growth made by locally-produced stock . since planting .. on the various settlers' blocks speaks more for the value of the stock grown here than columns of newspaper -advertising. The stock for the coming season will be well up to the high standard already establish ed. .'

FRUIT TREES ON TERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

FRUIT TREES ON TERMS. In the recently published scheme for as sistance, it was d-finitely stated that in future all settlers requiring trees on terms would be supplied only through the Lee-ton Nursery, and that if the nursery did not have any stock of a particular variety asked for, arrangements would be made by the nurseryman to obtain a supply for any settler or settlers requiring that variety. It is well perhaps at this stage to point out that under these circumstances the Commissioner will not recognise any ar rangements made between settlers and outside nurserymen for fruit trees sup plied. Such arrangements were recognised last year. Particular attention is directed to this fact in order that there may be no mis conception in regard to the matter later on. Settlers should now book their orders either at the Leteton or Mirrool offices, or with the Instructional Staff when visiting their farms, for next season's planting. Any orders so booked, however, must be confirmed in May n...
