A VALUABLE PRODUCT. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 24 August 1894
A VALUABLE PRODUCT. Marked success has attended the px periments made by several farmers in cqltivating the ramee or rhea plant frqm cuttings eupplied by the Agri pultural departmpent. The method of oultivating the plant somewhat re spplbles that of the raspberry, tp which it is similar in appearance as el!! as in its manner of growth. The raunee plant.is grown largely in China and Japan, and itit is knowh as China grass. It is largely us?_ tor adulteraiing silk fabrics, for which purpose it enters into competition with the finer class pf, cot ton material. The opinion of compe tent judges is that when improved ma chinery becomes available for the pre paration of ramee for manufacturing purposes the plant will become a most valuable commercial vegetable product. According to the returns obtained by one Victorian farmer recently, it ;is estimated that the produce would yield at the very least £40 per acre. Messrs. J. Miller and Co., rope manu" facturers, of Yarraville, have done much...
