Broom Millet. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

Broom Millet. A number of settlers- on the Irrigation Areas have planted broorti millet this year, and a little information regarding' the crop will no doubt be found useful. Where labor is scarce or expensive the Department of Agricu'ture in its bulletin on the sujiect points out that several sow ings should be made in succession to en able the grower to deal with his crop at regular intervals, and not have the whole of it maturing at the same time. Culti vation to keep the weeds down and to conserve moisture is very necessary, and may be commenced when the young plants are 6in. high. The operation should be repeated every fortnight or three weeks, as the millet plants are rather slow growers in their early stages. Like maize, millet does not require a great deal of water. The most critical period is that during which the heads are forming. If the weather be dry, then water should be applied or the heads may be short and stunted. Needless to say, irrigation should be through furrow...

Soil Studies. (Continued from last issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

Soil Studies. BT H. J. BRAUND. (Continued from last issue.) The Fixation of Nitrogen by Bacteria. As lucerne is bound to be a standard crop on these Areas, and as the growth for soiling purposes of leguminous . crops such as vetches, peas, &c., must be given attention by all intelligent settlers, a dis cussion of the main principles underlying the properties possessed by the legumes should prove interesting and instructive. It has been known amongst agricul turists from the earliest times that the growth of a leguminous crop leaves the land in a richer condition (especially as regards nitrogen) 'for any subsequent crop that may follow it. It was recognised that in some way or other a leguminous crop differed very much from any other class of crop in its efforts upon the land, and its cultivation was found to be equi valent to the application of a considerable amount of dung or manure. Experi ments have shown that the growth of leguminous plant leaves the ground richer in nit...

THE MELON. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

THE MELON. No doubt large quantities of melons will be produced on the Irrigation Areas this year, as last. Both watermelons and rockmeloris do exceedingly well with little trouble, but at the same time the yield can be increased and the quality of the crop improved very greatly by proper cultivation. Cultivation should be continued as long as possible. The horse cultivator should b2 worked ti l the vines are liable to dam age by continued use; after that the hoe or fork should be brought into requisition. Melons require abundant moisture, and the presence in the ground of humus in tjie form of manure is therefore very ne cessary. It would also be advisable for as much mulching as possible to be placed around the vines, as the effect of the mulching in conserving water cannot be over-estimated. It is a good rule not to leave too thick a growth, and care should be taken always to remove defective fruits. Flavor should be aimed at as much as size and appearance. In fact well flavored ...

GRADING PEACHES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

GRADING PEACHES. A new idaa for grading peaches has ap parently been tried with success in America. It is known as the "Price Fruit Sizing Machine/' The essential part is stated to be 'a canvas cup on a light steel arm, which by an arrangement of cams and springs throws each individual fruit through the air, after which they are caught in canvas troughs arranged at dis tances of from 2 to 20 feet from the arm. The smallest sized fruit is naturally thrown to the farthest trough, and the gradation in size thus obtained is said to be far more 'accurate than the judgment of individual packers. Although the machine is stated to work satisfactorily, it would appear at first sight that fruit is not going to . be im proved by a journey of 20ft. through the atmosphere with a considerable bump at the end of it.

PROGRESS ON THE HAT IRRIGATION AREA. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1914

PROGRESS ON THE HAT IRRIGA TION AREA. The report of the Manager of the Hay Irrigation Area for the! quarter ending 30th September last is very satisfactory. Simi lar conditions exist in the Hay d'strict to those in other parts of the Riverina. The season has beien an exceptionally dry one, and the country general'y has suffer ed as a result. The Irrigation Area how ever, provides a pleasing contrast to its dreary surroundings, and there is consider able activity on the Area at present. The crop acrelage will be larger this year than ever before, and practical'y 1000 acres will be irrigated. The bright green of the fodder crops sterns a veritable oasis in the surrounding desert. Some doubt is expressed as to whether the Murrumbidgee will hold out. If it does, the Manager states the settlers should h'ave a good season. As a matter of fact with the available! amount of water in Burrinjuck Dam there will be little to waste after the statutory 300 cusecs has been let down for the lowelr ...

IRRIGATION IN CALIFORNIA—SOME STARTLING FIGURES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

IRRIGATION IN CALIFORNIA STARTLING FIGURES. People are sometimes surprised when we speak of the magnitude of the. Mur rumbidgee Irrigation Schjsme with its 7000 farms in prospect. How such people would stare if they were told that at the present time in Ca'ifornia there were ap proximately 40,000 farms under irrigation. As the total tiumber of farms in the State is somewhere about 88,000, the tremend ous use being made of irrigation wiH be readily seen. There are over 1500 reser voirs in that State with a capacity of 5i million gallons per minute. The total length of the ditches constructed is over 21,000 miles-a'most sufficient to com pletely circle the earth. The limited supply of water available for irrigation purposes precludes New South Wales from ever rivalling Cali fornian figurrs as far as magnitude is con cerned, but, no doubt, in years to come, the best possible use will be made of every drop of water that is available in the rivers and streams of the great southern contin...

THE SIN OF BURNING OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

THE SIN OP BURNING OFF. Years 'ago in the Hunter River district it used to be a common sight after the maize harvest had been reaped to see the whole countryside aglow wi^h fires; burn ing off was the usual method employed for getting trid of the corn stalks. Amongst good farmers to-day this practice is considered wicked and wasteful. It is recognised that to go over the land with a stalk cutter or disc 'and cut the stalks up so that they can be turned under pro perly is a mattsr of some difficulty and expense, but that it is worth the trouble there is no doubt. This will particularly be the case on the Irrigation Areas for some y-elars to come until the soil has been well supplied with humus and organic matter, which can be obtained from no other source but decayed vegetation. A green manure crop cannot be plant ed without expense-probably much great er than would be entailed in .discing in the corn stalks. It is doubtful, however, whether much more humus would be pro duced by the ...

RESISTANT STOCKS. Order Now. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

RESISTANT STOCKS. Order Now. During his recent lecture at Leeton, M. Blunno stated that resistant stocks could be obtained by ordering from the Department of Agriculture, but settlers would want to get in early. The full text of M. Blunno's remarks on this question will be published at an early date, meanwhile it is worth noting that he considers the following stock best suit ed for all the Areas conditions. They are given in the order in which the lec turer placed them : Rupestris du Lot. 1202. A.R.G. No. 1. 3306. 3309. When ordering stocks settlers should supply the department with full particu lars of the class of soil on their block particularly the area to be planted if their soil varies at all; its depth, texture, nature of subsoil, and, above all, the per centage of lime in both soil and subsoil should be given, or samples sent for an alysis, if the department thinks that course advisable before stocks are sent. Even if stocks are ordered now, there is no guarantee that they ...

Settlers Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

Settlers Meeting. A well-attended meeting of settlers was held in the Commissioner's Office, Deeton, on the evening of Tuesday, 8th ultimo, the following subjects being discussed: 1. Government Savings Bank Loans. It was pointed out by Mr. Oag, who in troduced the sfubject that a very serious position was likely to arise in the near future through the inability of settlers who had spent their capital in improve ments to their farms to obtain a loan. He urged the Commissioner to consider the advisability of providing soim avenue of relief. In reply, the1 Commissioner stated that he thought it possible that the Savings Bank Commissioners might be prepared, now that thz finances of the country had been placed more or less on a stable basis, to recommence lending to settlers. He would see them on his re turn to town, and if necessary interview the Premier. The closing down of the Savings Bank had taken place prior to the recent financial airangements being completed. ,Mi\ Ziele asked fo...

THE AREAS' FIRST CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

THE AREAS' FIRST CHEESE. The experimental cheese made some short time ago on the Irrigation Areas has now ripened sufficiently to allow of an estimate of its qualities being made by an expert, and the following report by Mr. Matthew Wallace, of the Department of Agriculture, will be of interest to dairy men, particularly at Mirrool, where the cheese-making industry is to be shortly established. In view of the circum stances under which the cheese was gra ded, the result achieved cannot be con sidered as anything less than eminently satisfactory. Mr. Matthew Wallace's report reads as follows: "I have the honor to report that I have cut and examined the small cheese for warded per the manager of the butter factory at Yanco. "The cheese submitted had a fine mild flavor, and the body was good. Owing to the cheese being very much heated during transit, the texture was somewhat faulty, and the fat was coming freely from the cheese. There was some delay in forwarding the cheese from Cooma,...

Our First Dried Fruit. HOW IS IT TO BE CURED? [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

Our First Dried Fruit. HOW IS IT TO BE CURED? By W. McEachem. Picking. -In picking fruit, it goes with out saying that the first thing to settlfc is that it is ripe. The amateur as a rule is liable to .eirr by picking thie fruit before it is fully ripe. With sultanas and Gordo Blancos, this, although resulting in a loss of weight, will probably give a slightly better color, than would be the case were the fruit fully ripe, and carrying a great er percentage of sugar. With Zante cur rants, however, which are not dipped, it is essential in order to get the best coloi and body that this fruit shouM be fully ripe before picking. If not allowed to hang long enough the result is what is generally termed "foxy" fruit, that is to szy, fruit of a reddish color. I would advise settlers to allow thieii fruit to hang for at least a week after they have made up their minds that it is fit to pick; by so doing it will be gain ing weight owing to the development of the sugar, and in many instances ...
