Instructional Notes. FRUIT GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 February 1915

Instructional Notes. FRUIT GROWING. [One of the-last official actions of the late Commissioner was the dictation of a long minute dealing with the future of fruit growing and vegetable growing for the cannery on the Irrigation Areas. This minute was never signed, but Mr. Wade was very dnxious that settlers should be given the fullest possible information as to 1. The varieties and quantities of fruits which had been planted. 2. The varieties of fruits which it was considered should be planted in or der to ensure a satisfactory supply to the cannery throughout the sea son, and satisfactory prices to sett lers. 3. The proportion of the various canning fruits wllich should be planted in future years so as to ensure economi cal production from the settlers' point of view, and also satisfy the requirements of all the canneries that will be established. 4. Full information in connection with the varieties of vegetables, the growth of which was necessary to keep the cannery going during th...

The Lucerne Crop and the Drought. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 February 1915

The Lucerne Crop and the Drought. T TThe late Commissioner was strongly of opinion that many settlers were making a great mistake grazing off their lucerne with agisted stock. He many times mentioned the fact in conversation, and it was at his suggestion that the follow ing article was written. It was submitted to him some time ago in rough draft form, and he then gave ut terance to some further thoughts that have since been embodied in it. Unfor tunately his untimely end precluded the possibility of the matter being again brought under his notice, but readers must take the notes following and those that will appear in subsequent issues for what they are worth as an earnest attempt to place before them a few facts about the lucerne problem that the late Mr. Wade was anxious they should have brought under their notice.-Ed.] 1. Does it Pay to Sell the Grazing Rights? A considerable portion of Eastern Aus tralia has just suffered-in fact, is still suffering-from the effects of a severe...

OVER IRRIGATION AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 February 1915

OVER IRRIGATION AGAIN. "Student," Broken Hill, writes:-I have my block (which is about one-eighth of an acre) planted with vines and fruit trees, and amongst them is a four year-old Zante currant vine, which at three- years old bore about ten or a dozen bunches of ripened fruit, but at four years old (this year) did not set its fruit, the bunches (which were very numerous) simply withered up and dropped off just as the berries were about to set. I gave this vine the same treatment as the other vines (which are not currants), withheld the water while the blossom was on. Can you explain the reason of the currants not manuring, and whether the currant vine needs similar or different treatment to the ordinary vine? I also have an apricot (Moorpark) which is four years old. At three years old it bore only three fruit, and at four years old (this year) it has borne the same numbej, notwithstanding that I followed your directions (which have appeared in the "Record") on pruning the Apricot...

Malting Barley. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 February 1915

Malting Barley. Malting barley is a crop which has al ready done very well on the Irrigation Areas. It has been before pointed out in these columns, that J. T. Trethewey has grown it for two successive years with fair results, and Mr. Herbert, Farm 62, has also been reasonably successful with it. It is felt that year in and year out it should be a very profitable crop, and some investigations have been made by the Commissioner with regard to its actual possibilities The information which has resulted is now passed on for the use of those who are considering the question of planting cereals this coming winter. What the Market Requirements Are. In the course of the investigations made, information has been received to the e£ feet that malting barley is largely grown in Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, and Queensland, where it holds its own against all other cereals to the benefit of the grower. Roughly speaking, thsre is a market amongst New South Wales malt sters for more than 25...

SEVEN DEADLY SINS OF POULTRY KEEPING [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 February 1915

I SEVEN DEADLY SINS OF POULTRY KEEPINC 1. A Low Aim : A flock of purebred healthy paying hens is a' fine aim for the farmer. They will consume the waste of the farm and buy spring hats for the wife and daughter. 2. Carelessness About Vermin : This is the rock on which has split many a man Tceeping poultry as a' side line. Perhaps a little vermin does not do much harm, but carelessness in this regard leads to serious trouble, and later on the vermin cannot be eradicated. 3. Keeping Too Many Breeds : There are excellent layers of many breeds. Laying is a' matter of strain, and not of breed, but keeping several breeds at once is a troublesome matter, and hinders the development of any one of them. 4. Haphazard Methods : Breeding and feeding on haphazard lines cause untold injury to the poultry. Poultry culture is.a science, and musit be gone about scientifically. Right ways of doing a thing are not hard to find. 5. Tod Ambitious a Beginning : A large beginning sometimes makes a sudden ...

The Late Commissioner. A SKETCH OF HIS CAREER. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 February 1915

The Late Commissioner. A SKETCH OF HIS CAREER. None of the mysterious acts of an All wise Providence are harder for the finite mind to understand than those sudden blows which remove from the scene of their labors leaders of thought and action whose powers stand out in marked relief above those of their fellows. In these days it is comparatively a rare thing to find a man so wrapped up in his life's work that he practically lives for it; finds no difficulty too great to overcome if it in any way helps forward the ideal he has in view; no strain too hard to bear if it carries his work a step further along the rugged pathway that leads to success. When the hand of death suddenly re moves from our midst such a man whose life's work is a task of the greatest mag nitude and importance, it is doubly hard to see how good can result from the stag gering blow which his friends and fellow workers are called upon to bear. Such thoughts as these are natural when considering the death of Mr. L. ...

THE MALTSTERS' GUARANTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 February 1915

THE MALTSTERS' GUARANTEE. So anxious are maltsters to procure -good local malting barley that they are prepared to give a guarantee to growers regarding the taking of their crop if of good quality. It was understood that this guarantee had recently been with drawn, but certain correspondence which has passed between "The Maltings," Mit tagong, and the local branch at the Coastal Farmers' Society shows that this is not so in every case. Messrs. Tooth & Co.'s guarantee for 1914, read as follows. Special attention is directed to clause 2, which seems to be all in favor of the grower, should a high price rule: GUARANTEE, 1914. In consideration of Mr. , hereinafter called the grower, sowing Chevalier type malting barley on his property during the ensuing season of 1914, Tooth & Co., Limited, hereby guarantee as follows: (1) That they will purchase from the aforesaid grower all Chevalier type barley he carl produce during the year 1914, which is equal in quality to the mal...

Correspondence. SORE TEATS. Leeton, January 18, 1915. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 February 1915

Correspondence. SORE TEATS. Leeton, January 18, 1915. Dear Sir,-I notice in your last ''Irriga tion Record" that a correspondent, signed "Ignorant," wants a cure for sore teats in dairy cattle. The, following is a certain cure, if directions are carried out:-Boil together equal quantities of mutton kid ney fat and castor oil, strain when all the fat is well rendered, and stir while cool ing (otherwise they will separate). The milker should use a damp cloth on the udder and teats before starting, and then apply a small quantity of the ointment to each teat; this, instead of wetting the teat in the usual way, will carry them through the milking, and the^e Will not be any drip into the milk. When I had to do with cows I always kept a quantity of this on hand, and each milker had a small tin tacked on to the milking stool, and carried a supply with him, and applied a small quantity to the teats of each cow before milking always, instead of the old dirty way of wetting them with milk. If...

Veterinary Notes. TYMPANITES. Toorak inquires:-"Can you tell me something of the .cause and cure of blow ing in cattle from eating too heartily on lucerne? Quite a number of cows are being lost on the Areas through blowing. It would be a help if you could give general and useful information appertain ing to the subject, and I am sure you would earn the gratitude of settlers here."
