GREEN MANURING USE OF FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
• • '&lt;&ROE^ USE OJF FERTILISERS. : Green manuring to furnish a: supply of organic matter, and to collect nitro gen from -the air—in the case of the green-manuring crop being legumin ous—can be employed with decided ad vantage on practically any soil. To get the best results from green manur ing it is necessary to supplement it by the application of fertilisers. On tliis subject a distinguished German pro fessor of agriculture has made the fol lowing observations:— (a) The necessity for the addition 'of nitrogen is dependent on the success of the green crop and on the requirements of the following crop. For instance, if the green crop has grown well, pota toes and cereals on good or medium soil should not require the help of any additional artificial nitrogen. Following a poor green crop, It may be advisable to give either (potatoes or cereals, especially'oats, the benefit of a top-dressing of 1 cwt. nitrate of soda. Mangolds following a green crop will certainly. ...

COMPOSITION OF WHEAT SEASONAL INFLUENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
fiSEF?LUENGES, In an artici^ on "The Milling and tBaking- Qualities of Victorian Wheats/1 published in the current number of the "Journal of Agriculture,'* Mr A. E, V.. Richardson, M.Agricultural Super intendent, discusses the question of' the composition of wheat as affected by "environment. . Composition of wheat raised on any given spot, he says, de pends on three main factors—(1) the nature of the season, (2) the nature of the soil on which the seed is grown, and (3) the variety of wheat grown. There have always been considerable differences of opinion as to how far the quality of the wheat is determined by its environment—that is, _soil and cli matic conditions, and how far it may be regarded as characteristic of the variety. 1 &lt; The problem is one of considerable -importance both to the wheat breeder and to the miller.- A knowledge of the respective parts played by heredity and by environment in the production of quality in wheat is of importance to the wheat breede...
FARM EMPLOY CLAIMS FOR CONSIDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
FARM - EMP3QOlf£ CUAIMS FOR CONSIDERATION. The farm labor, question was. dealt "with in a paper read before the Coora bie branch of the: South Australian Bureau of Agriculture by Mr V. R. Weston. Mi* Weston said that "even though we may riot have a surplus of men, we cannot be too particular as to those we employ.^ If we employ only the best, then only the best men will apply for employment. In my mind the man we want is he who; works, not merely for the sake of earning a living, but who has for his object that of ul timately becoming an employer himself. This class of man is the ideal. He takes more interest in his work and in doing it well,, and shows more con sideration toward his ' employer than the man who is merely after his wages. "Personally I would sooner do with out a rhan than to have to employ | a second-rater. It is indeed poor eco nomy to employ one of these merely be cause we can get him for a lower wage than a tip-top man. It is something like purchasing an inferior ...
COUNTRY NEWS MILDURA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
From Our Correspondents. , j -MILDURA. Warm days have ripened the apricots very quickly, with "the result that drying is;|to full swing. Pitting machines in use at seve-r ral of the factories have proved successful, where the' fruit is not small. i The apricot crop is unusually heavy, not withstanding that strong winds prevailed, after the fruit set. The wind thinned : out the crop, which was fortunate, as the trees, seem to have carried as much as possible.: In one case over tons of fresh fruit was gathered from 25 trees (the full number o£ apricot trees on the block from, which fruit', was harvested). - Of the other fruits, pears and prunes have both Bet and are hanging well; Lemons and oranges (with the exception of some late Valentias) have all been harvested. : I ; December irrigation was 'finished about a week ago. Of the vine crops, Gordos have set excep tionally well—likewise the Sultanas and cui'T rants. Excepting those which were damaged by the recent hailstorm (some very ...

GRAIN ELEVATORS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914
GRAIN" ELEVATORS Nunga (Ouyen) writes:—Knowing the wide circulation, of your much esteemed journal and tho valuable issistance it gives to farmers, I would like to make an appeal on behalf of Lha farmers for your help in trying to get the Government to build grain elevators at the seaside in Melbourne. Firstly, if ther© were elevators in Melbourne into which to empty the bags, one-half the bags now used would be sufficient. As soon as we had a fair number filled we could cart them in, send them away, and go on stripping till the empty bags came back. Secondly, there would not be such a rush., at the end of the sea son for railway trucks, as the wheat would have come in earlier. Thirdly, it would save the great expense in bags (this year ten guineas for a bale), with most of the money going out of the country. As there are about 2000 farmers in Walpeup Shire, if we could only do without one hale each, it would save us, say, twenty thousand guineas. What a merry Christmas it would mea...

PERSIAN SHEEP. B, Harrison, F.LlS, (Barringbar New South Wales) writes:— So far as I am aware, the fat tailed Persian sheep has not yet been intro duced into Australia, and as your paper has a large circulation among stock owners the following information may prove acceptable. Some of these sheep were brought to the "United States of America by the Minister to Persia in June, 1892, and they were giver to a firm of noted pastoralists to experiment with on their farms. At that lime very little was known about them. One of the peculiarities about the sheep ,as the name indicates, 13 the broad flat tail, which hangs down about ten or twelve inches, and is from twelve to fifteen inches wide, weighing when the animal is fat from 201b to 301b. A baked sheep's tail, it is said, i.-s con sidered by the Persians a great deli cacy, the choicest part of the mutton. The substance is also frequently used by them as a substitute for butter The thoroughbreds are covered with a coarse wool (carpet w...
