THE RUST IN WHEAT COMMITTEE [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 3 March 1865
THE RUST IN WHEAT COMMITTEE At the meeting of the Council of the Board of Agriculture held on Wednesday, Mr Mackenzie handed in for perusal a report on the rust question as follows:-- "SIRS, -- Since our last meeting I have the honor to inform you that at the request of the farmers I have visited many parts of the country, going in and out amongst them, and noting everything new or important, strengthening our former views of the advantages of early sowing and the necessity for ploughing up the land for a summer fallow. I urged on them all the desirability of varying their crops and growing more roots, beans and peas, so as not wholly to depend on wheat, oats, and potatoes. I found the " Adelaide " seed as be- fore in most cases to be the worse rusted, contrasting very unfavorably with our own colonial grown seed. I am of opinion that farmers requiring new seed (which is very desirable) should obtain it from the colder parts of the colony, say from Colac, Ballarat &c., or Ta...
