THE SCHOOL ONION GROWING COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

THE SCHOOL ONION: GROWING COMPETITION. [For years past Americans have been running competitions in their schools with a view to interesting the rising genera tion of farmers in the cultivation of vari ous crops. The scheme has met with success far greater than its originators ever anticipated-in fact, the matter has been taken up in a way that may truly be called national. The yields obtained by some of the young champions have been simply astonishing. Recently, for example, the photo, of the champion corn grower of one of the Middle Western States was published in one of our ex changes, and underneath was the printed comment that his yield, duly authenti cated from an acre plot, was no less than 135 bushels. Several other competitors in the same State reached 120 bushels and upwards, while many more easily topped the 100 bushels mark. No more need be said to show the value that results from the carrying out by the young idea of the theoretical teaching imparted to them by their sch...

The Washington Navel. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

The Washington Navel. (By W. D. BROOISS, Mirrool.) Origin.-Although it was brought over from Brazil and cultivated in Florida as far back as 1830, the ''Great Freeze" of 1835 wiped it practically out of existence. About 1874 the Department of Agricul ture at Washington again introduced the trees from the south, and sent them out to growers under the name of "Washing ton Navel." It was-before that termed the " Bahia" orange. All other varieties of navel (so called from the characteristic malformation at the apex of the fruit) are either improvements on or imitations of the original Washington Navel, named so for the first time in 1874. Stocks.-The Washington is very sen sitive in regard to stocks, but owing to the great diversity of opinions it is im possible to make any definite statement in this matter. Experience must tell in a few years which is tlie best stock for the Navel in the special conditions govern ing the Areas. Effect of Stock on Type of Tree and Fruit.-With lemon stoc...

THE SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

THE SCHOOLS. - The s;cond annual concert of the Leeton Public School was held in the Enterprise Hall, Leeton, on Wednesday night, the 16th December, 1914, when the hall was packed with an enthusiastic gathering. The first part of ths programme consist ed of action songs and solos by the school children, who performed their parts with great animation, the " Leetori Volunteers" arousing a patriotic thrill through the 'audience. The infants then created some merriment with their answers to the school inspector on "Examination Day. The 'evening was concluded with a pat riotic operetta, " The Birth of the Union Jack, ' wh-:,re Britannia, accompanied by her subjects, receives St. - George, St. An drew, and St. Patrick for the purpose of deciding on a Union flag for the whole of the British Isles. Master Murray Nulty, as St. Patrick, contributed to the amuse ment of the evening by his spirited ren dering of the part of the Patron Saint of Ireland. This was followed by a tableau in which th...

Lucerne Between Fruit Trees. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

Lucerne Between Fruit T rees. A few additional opinions on this im portant question are1 submitted for . what they are worth. It will be seen that they vary v-ejry considerably, but there are some points of common agreement which .will be referred to lat^r. Mr. W. J. Allen, Consulting Irrigation Expert to the Commission, is of opinion that the planting of lucerne amongst the trees in the young orchards - planttfd ou1 on the Areas would in many cases tend to withdraw too mha-ch moisture from the soil, but in special cases where the<re is a tendency for the water to accumulate a few feet down and to dry out in the surfaoe soil he thinks that. the result would be such as to fully warrant experi ments being tried, because!- . (a) The lucerne would extract from the subsoil surplus moisture which would otherwise lay there and tend to raise the water-plane; and " (b) Because the growth would tend to keep the surface soil cool and so prevent excessive evaporation and baking. Mr H...

A WORD TO DAIRYMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

A WORD TO DAIRYMEN. An unfortunate typographical error oc curred in Mr. Inspector Madden's article, published in last issue, on the above sub ject. In the course of that article he re marked: "There is no room for 'wasters* in a herd; they are like dirty dairy men, a blot on the community." By the omission of the word "dirty" the sense of the par was obviously altered. After advocating dairying so consistently it would be strange, indeed, for the "Re cord" to generally condemn all dairymen in such scathing terms.

Tomatoes for the Cannery. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

Tomatoes for the Cannery. Generally speaking, the tomato aimed at in America for canning purposes is a distinct type from the tomato aimed at by growers for the fresh veritable mar ket. This is a point which needs to be kept in sight by growers on the Irriga tion Areas. It is a mistake for settlers to imagine thiat 'even with a crop like tomatoes, which does particularly well, the only thing necessary is to put them in and l:t them grow. If this course be followed the result may be anything from nothing to 5 or 6 tons to the acre according as the plot is given greater or less attention. The prica paid for can ning tomatoes in America is about ten dollars or £2 per ton, and the cost of production is anything up to 35 dollars or £7 per ton. It will be seen, therefore, that with a 6-ton to the acre crop of tomatoes at these prices there is very little left for the grower after his ex penses have been paid. The price being offered by the Com missioner this season is considerably higher ...

OF IMPORTANCE TO THE LADIES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

OF IMPORTANCE TO THE LADIES. From time to time paragraphs are noted in various American publications regard ing the establishment of rest rooms for farmers' wives and daughters in the prin cipal towns on American irrigation schemes. To establish such a place and conduct it properly is something of an undertaking, but in m'any of the Ameri can cities the matter is being taken up by the local municipal authorities, otf committees are appointed to look after the concern. The idea is to have a place where a tired mother can come to town and sit down and rest, or possibly "fresh en up." Moreover, the room is often fitted with a writing table, and suitable .literature is kept. Some have even gone a step further, and arrangements can be made for mothers to leave their babies with the matron? On these irrigation schemes, therefore, shopping instead of a business becomes' a real pleasure. Is there any possibility of something similar being done for the ladies_ on the Murrum bidgee Irrigation...

GRADING PEACHES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

GRADING PEACHES. A new id^a for grading peaches has ap parently been tried with success in Ame rica. 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 2ft. to 20ft. 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 judg ment of individual packers. Although the machine is stated to- work satisfac torily it would appear at first sight that fruit is not going to b.e improved by a journey of 20ft. through the atmosphere with a considerable bump at the end of it.

PIGS ON LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

PIGS ON LUCERNE. "The Reclamation Record" recently re ported that the Church Hill Creamery (Nevada) placed 86 head of brood sows on a 1 acre fie'd of lucerne last spring (April), and about the time of writing (6 months later) the increase alone amounted to 400 head, making 486 pigs in the field. The lucerne was divided into three lots, and each paddock was fed off in rotation-the changes being frequent. The remarkable part abouit the story is that the pigs are reported to have had nothing but lucerne and water. It is further stated that an adjoining 40 acres of wheat was to be fed off when the grain was in the dough. The method, which had bsen previously tried, is report ed to have given good results.

ECHOES FROM AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 January 1915

ECHOES FROM AMERICA. Figs.'-M«r. Patterson,' of Yuma, Ari zona, has 18 bearing fig trees from which he rea1ised £60 for two seasons' crops, the first ripening in May and the second some months later. Hoiray.-Mr. W. G. Growder, of the same scheme, is netting this year over £1000 from his honey crop. Rock Melons.-Mr. E. L. Stewart, of Yakima Val1ey, Washington, has melons between the trees of a young orchard 6 acres in extent. His crop is estimated at from 2500 to 4000 crates. The average price per crate is about 6/. If growers on the Murrumbidgee Areas could g-3)t any thing like this for rock melons, they would be well worth growing. Is . the working up of a similar trade in Sydney and Me1bourne an impossibility?

The Seepage Danger. SOME WARNINGS. In continuation of the aiticle publish ed in a recent issue of the "Irrigation Re cord" regarding the danger to be feared from the excessive irrigation of farm lands, a little more detailed information gathered from the reports made by the officers of the American Reclamation Service on the various Government pro jects in the United States will not per haps be amiss.-* Yuma Project,* Arizona, California.-It is stated that several units in the portion opened to settlement in 1910 ware affect ed by the rise of ground water during the season of 1912. Excessive use of water by settlers, many of whom had little or no experience in irrigation farming, was undoubtedly the cause.
