Bulk Handling [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

Bulk Handling While the reconstructed Victorian Cabinet has not made any definite" pronouncement regarding- its attitude towards bulk handling of wheat, the question has not been shelved. The new Ministry may, indeed, show more sympathy with the important move ment than did the old. Mr Watt has already announced that he will bring the subject before the forthcoming conference of Premiers. The high price paid for wheat bags during the present season has intensified the de sire of growers for a change. If a plebiscite of farmers were taken it would probably be preponder atingly in its favor. The Cham ber of Agriculture, as the mouth piece of the annual conventions of farmers, is evincing a desirable ac tivity. The last two conventions have carried resolutions advocating bulk handling, and the chamber, at its meeting last week, decided to call a conference of agricultural associations from the different States, to be held in Melbourne in March. The expressed object is to "force the han...

In West Australia [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

In West Australia In West Australia, a small wheat producing State, a Bulk Handling of Grain Advisory Board has reported in favor of the system.' It is a wise move at the present stage of local development. On the western sea board wheat is likely to "be grown ex tensively, and the cost of inaugurat ing bulk handling would be certainly less now than a few years hence, when the output of grain is doubled or trebled. ^ The recommendations of the board were as follow:—1. That the system of bulk handling and ship ping of wheat be gradually intro duced in West Australia. 2. That steps be taken to introduce the sys tem at once, so as to provide for the surplus above the amount already cap able of being handled by our present bag facilities. 3. That provision be made for handling from 5,000,000 to 8,000,000 bushels in the season 1915 16, at an estimated cost of £161^700, together with an additional £100,000 for railway facilities. 4.

THE RURAL WORLD FARM AND FIELD QUESTIONS ANSWERED [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

QUESTIONS ANSWERED Bracken.—H. H. (Bairnsdale).—The most effective method for destroying bracken is to slash them persistently, starting in the early summer and cutting again as soon as the growth is renewed. (1) Heavy pasturing ■with sheep is useful, but is not always pos sible. Rape should grov,- on your land, and .would render grazing pcfcsible. It is a cleans ing crop, ana because of its deep rooting habits and the soiling advantages obtained from sheep it_ would be beneficial to the land. Work the soil down line, and sow in March or April, applying 60 lb. per acre of super phosphate wfch 7 to 8 lb. per acre of seed (if broadcasted). (2) It is doubtfu* whethei . your land is good enough for lucerne. An i .Opinion could not be expressed without per sonal inspection. Liming would help against the bracken, and to sweeten the soil for cropping. (3) It is inadvisable to peg down runners from barren strawberry plants. {4) Your system of feeding the White Leghorn pullets is correct. Th...

THE WILD OAT METHODS OF DESTRUCTION OPINIONS OF FARMERS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

METHODS OW DESTRUCTION OPINIONS OF FARMERS For some time the problem of wild bat destruction, in New South Wales known as the black oat, has been re reiving the serious attention of agri culturists in the Coradgery district of the sister State, and at a recent meet ing of the local branch of the bureau three of the most practical men con tributed papers setting forth theii views in regard to it. Mr. M. J. Keil (says a departmental publication), emphasised the fact that the seed of the black oat has been known to lie dormant, but virile, in the ground for many years. "Hence," he continued, "the method employed must be one that will cause all the peed to germinate as early as possible. To this end, as soon as practicable after the area has been stripped, let the stubble be burned off, and the land: immediately scarified with the spring- J tooth cultivator. The surface mulch j thus created will tend to retain the j subsoil moisture and assist germina- . tion, as well as make it practic...
