FRUIT NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

FRUIT NOTES. (By W. J. Adams.) There is -really very little for orch'ardists to do this month other than the usual cultivation and watering of the trees. Dis budding and the various other matters recently referred to will by this time have beien completed.: It is regretted that in spite of all that has been published in these columns dur ing the last two ye'ars many settlers ap parently still fail to grasp tha principles underlying the methods of properly apply ing water to the soil. It has, therefore, been thought advisable to re-publish in this issue a sketch which previously ap peared in the " Record/' which clearly sets out the movements which take pl'ace in soil water. A careful study of this sketch is recommended. Deciduous Trees. -? Young deciduous trees should not be watered after Janu ary next, because watering late in the year forces the growth too much, and does not give the wood a chance to harden off before the cold weather sets in. Therefore, settlers are strongly advi...

The New Broken Hill. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

Although at times a centre of tremeni ous industrial activity, Broken Hill by all accounts is not quite an earthly para dise for the working man or for the capi talist. Litt'e wonder, then, that many members of the thinking and progressive section of the community there have for years past been anxious to seek "fresh fields and pastures new" where they could succeed in earning sufficient to support themselves and their families in comfort and put a little by for a rainy day under conditions of life far more congenial than those of " the Hill." Many of these men saw the possibilities of the Murrumbidgee Scheme long before the land was actually available, and as soon as blocks were thrown open for set tlement they came over and put in ap plications. They were successful in ob taining good blocks, and so pleased were they with the possibilities of success that on their representations a number of other men have come across since. Most of the Broken Hillites are settled in the one dis t...

HEDGES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

HEDGES. A number of inquiries have beon re ceived by settlers in regard to the garden hedges suitable for Area conditions, and the following information on the subject has been obtained from the Director of the Botanical Gardens as a guide for gardeners:-? "Duranta Plumieri" is a quick-growing hedge pant which stands pruning and will, it is said, do well -either under irriga tion, or on land which cannot be irrigated. This is apparently the best of the hedges for the West, and can be obtained at the rate of 10/ per dozen plants in pots from any of the Leading florists in Sydney. The plants should be spaced 3ft. apart. Two other hedges recommended are the Common Olive and the1 "Atrip'ex Kumrriu laria" (O'd Man Salt Bush). Both should do well under irrigation. Seed of Old Man's Salt Bush is sold in packets, the cost being about 1/. "Privet" will 'also probably make a fine hedge under irrigation. The cost of this would be about 10/ per 100 -rooted plants, but they are not in pots. Flor...

FROPOSED DAIRY FARMERS' ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

FROPOSED DAIRY FARMERS' ASSOCIATION. On Monday, 30th November, a some what impromptu meeting of those settlers interested in dairy farming was h'3'ld at the butter factory, and Mr. M. A. O'Cal laghan was 'asked to take the chair, Mr. W. H. Brownrigg acting as secretary to the meeting. The Chairman explained the advan tages which those who intended to make dairy farming their permanent source of income would derive from being associated. A number of factors which concerned dairymein, and which had practically no interest to other settlers on the Irrigation Are&s wer.e pointed out by the cha:rman. For this reason it was advisable in th-3 interests of the development of dairying, as well as in the individual interests of the ssttle-rs, that the dairy farmers on the Areas should confer regularly and should bring before the Commissioner all matlers of special interest to their industry which in .their opinion demanded the special con sideration of the Commissioner. He also pointe...

Maize Cultivation. Effects of Varying Quantities of Irrigation Water and Manure on Growth and the Yield of Grain. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

Maize Cultivation. Effects of Varying Quantities of Irrigation Water and Manure on Growth and tho Yield of Grain. A very comprehensive s3ries of experi ments carried out with a view to obtain ing information on this important ques tion has recently been comp eted at the Utah Experimental Station, full details being given in that station's bulletin No. 133, which is just to hand. The results obtained from the use of any given quantity of water per acre can not, of course, be applied exactly to any particular irrigation district in New South Wales, owing to the difference in c'imatic and soil conditions. A number of general principles have, however, been establish ed in regard to the growth of this im portant crop which are no doubt as true in Australia as they have been found to be in America. Over-Irrigation Harmful.-One thing that has been definitely proved is that over-irrigation is absolutely injurious to the crop. The .experiments extended over three years, and although the amou...

A Word to the Dairymen. PRESENT AND PROSPECTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

A Word to Dairymen. PRESENT AND PROSPECTIVE. (By F. J. Madden, Dairy Inspector, Department of Public Health, N.S;W.) The inspection of dairies :and dairy cat tle recently carried out on the Areas, which necessitated my visiting practically the whole of the area at present in. occu pation and incidentally afforded me the opportunity of seeing for myself local con ditions, both natural :and by man accom plished, has convinced me, whilst-, not overlooking the many resources, that dairying, with its profitable adjunct, pig raising, is destined to become one of the principal, if not the paramount industry on the Areas. Therefore, as many of the dairymen are beginners, and on the, as sumption that others, though experienced, may benefit, and further actuated by the belief that the great majority of. the dairymen are anxious to do what is right, I am taking this opportunity of offering to them, present and prospective, a few hints as a guide to what is required of them by the Board of Heal...

ASSISTANCE TO SETTLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

ASSISTANCE TO SETTLERS. It is regrettM that the information pub lished in a recent issue of the "Irrigation Record" in regard to the new scheme of assistance to settlers was incorrect in one specific instance i.e., the supply of lucerne seed on terms. The statement was made that the terms for lucerne seed were iden tical with those for nursery stock. This paragraph was inserted before the ^ital alterations were made in the terms for nursery stock, and the necessary correc tion was not made as regards the lucerne ssed. The matter has only just been no ticed. The t3;rms for lucerne seed will be the same as those which previously operated for nursery stock, viz., one-third deposit, balance in equal instalments over a period of two years, with interest 'at 5 per cent.

MOVEMENT OF SOIL WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

MOVEMENT OF SOIL WATER. This i lustration has appeared in the "Irrigation Record" on a former occa sion, but no apo'ogy is made for its re insertion. It emphasises a very important feature in connection with irrigation prac tice,-one which cannot be too promin ently brought under the notice of either skilled or unskilled irrigators. Briefly, the story it tells is: 1. That continual movement is taking place in the water stored in the soil. When rain falls or irrigation water is ap plied, the moisture finds its way down, either rapidly or slowly according to the nature of the soil, until it reaches some more or less impervious layer, where it tends to accumulate knd form what Tsf^* technically known as the water-plane. It will readily be seen, therefore that the constant pouring on of further unneces sary supplies of water tends to increase the body of water lying on the impervious layer and to raise the water-plane, perhaps dangerously. 2. After an irrigation, when the surfaoe soil h...
