The Forbes Advocate, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1912. SHORTAGE OF TRUCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 6 February 1912
Hjje JfovW locate, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY G, 1912. \ SHORTAGE OF TRUCKS. It is a shameful thing -that the seemingly everlasting trouble of the truck supply should be worse this year than ever before. -The public^ were 'surely-, entitled-'to -.expect that the grievance would be moderated, and finally disappear as the years went on,, but, despite a slightly re- ' duced harvest, farmers find it more difficult than ever td, get their produce to the big distributing' centre. What this means to the man on the land is hard to' ascertain in actual figures, but the loss must be enormous. Sometimes the. remark is heard that the farmer is a man with a perpetual .grievance, but if anyone in the world lias something to call out about it surely is the farmer. The primary producer is the man upon whose shoulders rest the wealth and prosperity of the State, but judging by the amount of legislative acknowledgment he gets, it would seem cliat our politicians are of a very different mind—except at election...

RIGHT DEPTH TO PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 6 February 1912
'right depth to plough. At a recent meeting of the Narra\x=req-\ coorte branch of the South Australian\Bureau, a long- discussion was help upon the right depth to plough, following a paper read by Mr W. Loller. Members quoted several instances where deep ploughing, even as deeply as ten inches, gave best results in comparative tests. On the other hand, one of the most successful wheat growers in the district never ploughed land of any kind deeper than two inches or two and a half inches, and yet his average was over 20 bushels per acre on all soils. But he used the disc cultivator freely. Mr Loller quoted the case of a real good farrier at Barunga, who ploughed a light soil four and a half inches deep, turning up about two inches of clay. He got hardly any crop; and St was three years before he could make the soil show any improvement, by working it well at great cost.
