Orchard Notes. REGULATED FRUIT MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911

.I Orchard Notes. REGULATED FRUIT MARKETS. California has proved to the; world the great value of the opening tip and regulation of fruit markets. Years ago, when the production of fruit began to increase largely, the position of the growers became an unenviable one. Enormous quantities of fruit were dumped upon the mar kets in a haphazard way, with the result that there was either a "feast or a famine." In consequence of this prices were most irregular, and on the whole so unsatisfactory that' many fruitgrowers had to abandon the industry. Eventually the grow ers formed an association for the better regulation of the supplies placed upon the markets. The sys tem that has come to pass (remarks an exchange) is claimed to be as per fect as could be possibly imagined, and the good that has resulted from it is said to be far in advance of all .anticipations. Instead of some mar kets being over-supplied and others in a state of famine, as regards certain varieties of fruit, all are now e...

It is no good pinning your hopes on new varieties of wheats if yo are hanging on tignt to old styles of , farming. All the . Farrer wheats or any other wheats grown in a poor sort of way won't do as well as weakest old wheats if the latter are handled properly. Stick to the proven new varieties, but give thorn a chance. There is a section that still believes in the old Purple StraAV wheats and wont lieai of any tiling in favour of the new kinds. Most of those faimeis do not see much good in modern methods of growing wheat. Don't start worrying about what price is going to he next December. Jump right in and make up your mind to grow the best crop m the (Jistnct Have the wheat, and then start to look round for the price.

LAND LAW ANOMALIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911

LAND LAW ANOMALIES. A rather peculiar case is set down for hearing at the Land Board sit ting at Casino. A person selected a block of land, and paid the usual de posit and survey fees, but after wards obtained permission to with draw his application, and was told that he could obtain a refund of the amount paid. Now, however, he has been notified by the district surveyor, that another person has applied for the same land, though not exactly in the same shape or area as in the original survey, and was informed that the extra cost of the alteration in survey would be deducted from the refund on the first person's applica tion. It would appear, to the ordi nary layman that the new appli cant should be the person to pay the costs of the survey. However, on Friday, the Land Board will give its decision in this matter. In the case of a homestead selec tion at Mummulgum, bailotted for on 17th instant, part of the survey fee had been paid by a previous applicant to whom it was confirmed as ...

THE QUIRINDI SHOW. Mr. T. C. Worboys, who judged in the agricultural sections at the Qui rindi Show, supplies us with the fol lowing notes:-"The agricultural sec tion," he says, "was generally very weak, wheat being the only redeem ing feature about it. The wheat''Sam ples were really prime, weighing from G4 lbs. to 67 lbs. per bushel, but through having no sheaf accom panying it, the display lost much of its educational, value. The corn ex hibited was very fair, but poorly represented, and there were no oats or barley, no wheaten or oaten hay. only two entries of chaff and t>\~ j of oaten hay. Of potatoes there was only one exhibit, but pumpkins and onions were well represented. Other vegetables were very much neglocted, .and there was only a small collec tion. There was no ensilage or green fodders shown, except lucerne, it if--, therefore, evident the farmers aie not taking the interest they ought to take in the Quiriiuli Show, which should afford a true representation of the ...

NOTES. In lS'JIi only Zi per cent, of the area under wheat in South Australia was fallowed. To-day fifty per cent, is. Twelve years ago, 12,500 tons of su perphosphate was used on 250,000' acres, last year 90,000 tons were put on 2,400,000 acres. Fallowing, fertilising, and combin ing sheep with wheat has made the wheat-growing business in S.A. The'1 same factors;,are}:at, work here, but., a lot more could be done. Despite what has been said and'! written there is,.only a small propor tion of our' wheat' land fallowed?' Why? It pays. Sheep and Avlieat are certainly a very common mix ture, but in some parts fertilisers'* are not used to any great extent. In ordinary circumstances the com mercial fertiliser pays well. Still farmers should not pin their entire faith to it. Working the land pro perly, and planting rotation crops to feed the soil is the best form of fer tilising. ? Everv wheat-grower or grower of' any crops, should experiment for him self to find what manure his land.', ...

FLOUR. Large Turnover. Market Firmer. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911

FLOUR. Large Turnover. Market Firmer. Reading the reports in the daily papers, one would imagine that there had been just a slightly better de mand for Hour,.'but .in reality mill ers have been very busy, the turn over in the milled article in the ag gregate having been exceedingly large. : The fact of the matter was that bakers consistently, for some months pa,st had only been purchasing from hand-to-mouth, not caring to contract for future requirements, in view, of the steadily declining wheat market. However, last week they began to realise that flour values had about reached bottom, and that there was certainly a distinct move forward,in the wheat market, which millers would be certain to follow. Conse quently they came in and replen ished their pretty-well depleted stocks, doubtless having quietly had the intimation that official quotations were likely to be raised. At any rate, the Millers' Association have raised their prices .by 5/ per ton, making leading city brands now £8/...

Indian Cane as Fodder. AN EMORMOUS YIELDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911

Indian Cane as Fodder. AN EMORMOUS YIELDER. Some who read this heading may at first sight think the word "cane" is a misprint for " corn"-Indian corn or maize-but if they will read on they will find some useful information about a valuable fodder plant, com paratively new to Australia. Mr. K. R. Brotherton, of JMewlands, Yan daran, North Coast Railway, writes as fonows to the "Brisbane Courier": I have on several occasions read in your columns reports of the wonder ful heavy crops procurable from " In dian cane." I have personally proved it a most excellent producer of feed. By publishing the notes which follow I believe that you will be helping your country readers to a good fod der plant which' I think is little known to them at present. My attention was first drawn to Indian cane by a paragraph in the " Q. A. Journal" some three years ago, which gave a wonderful account of what a few acres would do in re gard to cattle feeding. I immediately wrote to the Department of Agri cultur...

RAILWAY RATES AND DECENTRALISATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911

RAILWAY RATES aiMD DECEN TRALISATION. The recent remarks made by Judge Heydon, concerning differential rail way rates hit tlie mark squarely. In this business tlie railways are follow ing the Avorst form of the American trusts. It is time the farmers took this matter up very seriously, and is one upon which we will have more to say shortly. Differential railway rates are an unjust disturber of the natu ral flow of trade all the time. They invariably hit the producer in the end, although at times they may appear to be rigged up to suit him. The main, indeed, the only object, is to benefit Sydney. We have a great respect for Sydney. That city is go ing to be the boss cocky of Austra lia. Everything points to that. But it can grow and flourish without any unfair bolstering. And when that bolstering is at the expense of the country producers and country in dustries it is time it was stopped. The farmer is keen on decentralisa tion. _ All his interests demand the creation of big, flouris...

TREATMENT OF WOUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911

TREATMENT OF WOUNDS. Wounds in these days of barbed Avire, are a too common occurrence, arid in addition to causing many deaths, are responsible for a great amount of blemishes, which decrease the animal's value. It may not be possible to avoid wounds, but it is certainly possible to avoid, by suit able-treatment, much-of-tlie unsight-.. ly blemishes caused by them. Wounds certainly do heal without treatment of any "sort sometimes; but any wound is benefited by treatment, and its effects minimised. It seems in credible in these enlightened days that men are still found who plaster mud, cow-dung, and other substances over wounds, and turn the animal out to recover as best it can. Others apply some heroic remedy, such as powdered bluestone or yellow ar senic, and expect good results. Xow, it 'must be distinctly understood that thcie is 110 substance yet invented that will cause a wound to heal. Many of the so-called healing lotions r:nd ointments are the reverse of lucuing, and do mor...

DANGER OF UNSEASONED TIMBER. Too mucli care cannot be exercised in the preparation of our dairy pro duce for the London and other mar kets .
