SETTLING SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 April 1915

SETTLING SOCIAL. This was the name given to the final meeting of" the Agricultural Show, held since our last issue. Owing to the Sydney Show, the manager and Mr. Alexander were not able to be pre sent at the function, but the Commission was represented by the deputy-manager and the horse superintendent. Owing to the secretary of the association having his time taken up with other duties, he is resigning the post, but he stated at the meeting that he would be a silent worker for the Agricultural Association.

SOUDAN GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 April 1915

SOUDAN GRASS. A, good deal of notice is being given in publications at the present time to the virtues of Soudan Grass, which is said to be related to Johnson Grass, but distin guished from it by the absence of root stocks and by its broader and more num erous leaves. Broadcasted or in drills, it grows to from 3 to 5 feet high, but when planted in rows and cultivated, the height can be increased from 6 to 9 feet. The hay of the cultivated crop, however, is not so good for marketing purposes as that from the broadcasted crop. This grass is said to have good drought- resist ent qualities, and it has been well report ed upon by Mr. Harrison, of Burringbar, N.S.W. In his notes on the season's ex perimental work in this issue, Inspector McDiarmid also speaks well of the results of the sowing he made, this spring at Hay. The following information has been culled from an American leaflet. Under irrigation its growth is said to be rapid, and so prompt is its recovery from cutting that splen...

CHEAP OSTRICHES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 April 1915

CHEAP OSTRICHES. Reference has been made in these columns on previous occasions to the great slump that has taken place in the value of ostrich feathers owing to various causes which operated prior to the out break of war. No doubt the financial troubles which have followed upon the outbreak of hostilities have added to the difficulties of the ostrich farmers in South Africa, but even making all allowances for these facts, the position, as disclosed in recent reports, is worse than might have been anticipated. At a recent sale in South Africa, 70 full-grown birds were knocked down at 2/ each, 15 at 1/, and a pair of breeders at 5/6. An offer of £150 was refused for these two birds some time ago. The South African paper which was the source of this information also states that six well-bred fowls have been ex changed for the same number of ostriches. According to the latest fashion plates, os trich feathers are not likely to be worn greatly in the near future, consequently the immedi...

Grass Experiments. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 April 1915

Grass Experiments. Mr. Inspector McDiarmid has prepared a full report (printed hereunder) regard ing the grass experimentation work he has carried out during the spring of this sea son. It is mainly a record of failure, the outstanding successes being only a few in number. Rhodes grass is undoubtedly the best so far. Soudan and Hungarian broome, as well as one or two others, may prove all right when better established. When the statement outlining the ex periments proposed to be tried on the Areas was submitted to the Irrigation In vestigation Committee, it was pointed out that to sow soft English grasses during the months of August, September, or Oc tober was not likely to give any satisfac tory results. The details of the experiments, as now re ported by Mr. McDiarmid, prove this view to be correct. Soft grasses such as cocks foot, prairie, white Dutch clover, rye, blue grass, &c., to be a success on the favored South Coast lands, are preferred to be sown by progressive fa...

SPRING TRIAL OF GRASSES AND CLOVERS ON THE MURRUMBIDGEE IRRIGATION AREAS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 April 1915

SPRING TRIAL OF GRASSES AND CLOVERS ON THE MURRUM- BIDGEE IRRIGATION AREAS. To ascertain what grasses and clovers may thrive with spring sowing on the Irrigation Areas of Yanco, Mirrool, and Hay, several varieties of each were sown during the months of August, September, and October. It is apparent even at this early stage which are satisfactory and which are failures. The clovers have all proved to be unsuccessful, and most of the grasses. The spring has been unusually free from rain, but the same must be expected any year in this district. This absence of rain necessitated irrigating the land after sow ing the seed to germinate it. Although germination has been fair in most cases, much better results would have been ob- tained with suitable rain. This irrigating had the effect of "setting" the surface soil and interfering with the best growth of the young plant. In all cases where fur- rowing was adopted for irrigating the ger- mination has been better and the growth more successf...

TURKEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

TURKEYS. '^Another line that seems to be receiv ing some attention at the hands of set tlers, and certainly is deserving of much more consideration, is the business of tur key raising. Settlers who have started turkey farming operations report' that they have practically no trouble in rear ing and fattening off their birds. As the Areas develop, turkeys will undoubtedly become one of our big exporting products. With the advent of the killing and. chill ing works, it is to be hoped that a trade can be opened up with the metropolis and other southern markets in table fowls and turkeys dressed ready for the market v

General Notes. FOWLS ON THE AREAS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

General Notes. x; FOWLS ON THE AREAS. A visit to Mr. Stewart's poultry farm, and a conversation with the progressive owner, should impress any settler with the great prospects the Areas have in regard to poultry raising. At the present time eggs are worth 2/ a dozen at Leeton, and, strange to say, Murrumbidgee Irrigation Areas settlers are not at present in a po sition to supply the local demand for eggs; but, even if they could supply same, the market offering in Sydney and elsewhere is such that they need have no fear of not securing high prices for their product. Railway freight to Sydney on a case of 36 dozen eggs amounts to 2/6, and cannot be looked upon as being anything in the way of a handicap. That fowls thrive on the Areas is proved by a visit to Mr. Stewart's farm or an inspection of tHe fowls on almost every settler's block. '

BELGIAN RELIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

BELGIAN RELIEF. A public meeting was held in the Enter prise Hall, Leeton, on the evening of the 20th instant, for the purpose of considering what steps should be taken to make an appeal on the Irrigation Areas for the re lief of Belgian distress. A committee has been appointed, and the position thor oughly discussed with a view to arriving at the best means of obtaining contri butions from various sources. It was decided that boxes be placed in business premises, the Bank, and other public buildings, where there would be an opportunity of' "catching" the public. A demonstration, in which the school children will take part, assisted by the different societies throughout the district, is to be held in McCaughey Park on the 24th May (Empire Day) and a concert, in aid of the Fund, will be given in the even ing by the children. About a week later the Dramatic So ciety is also giving a concert, with the same object in view. It is intended to divide the Areas into sections and appoint col...

TEPARY BEAN [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

TEPARY BEAN In a recent report the officer in charge of the vegetable experiment plot stated that good results had been obtained in growing the Tepary bean, but that there appeared to be no local demand for it, and that the Canning Factory did not want it. In the circumstances, therefore, it is rather interesting to read that. in. Ame rica it is proving a wealth-maker in some of the hotter desert sections of the south west. In lieu of summer fallowing, Tepary beans are planted, and over i ton of beans to the acre is usually gathered. It is also recommended as a cover crop. Planted between the trees of a two-year old lemon orchard, it is reported to have given from H to 2 tons of crop, some of which was threshed out and produced as much as 17001b. of beans to the acre. Irrigation must be done sparingly or it will give successive crops and shatter badly. The writer quoted states that any stock-cattle, horses, swine, or poultry-? eat the bean hay and enjoy it, so that there is no loss ...

SUDAN GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

SUDAN GRASS. Following upon the information pub lished in last issue regarding Sudan grass, it is interesting to note that the mana ger of the Experiment Farm, Yanco, has just reported favorably on its growth. It was one of a number of fodder plants, small plots of which were planted for experiment purposes this year. When inspected by the writer some months ago, the Sudan grass,, although then in the early stages of its growth, compared fav orably with rows of various sorghums and millets in close proximity to it. Ap parently its early promise has been main tained. The Experiment Investigation Commit tee has resolved to keep in close touch with experiments with this fodder, and it has also been decided to purchase a small amount of the seed with a view to making a trial on the Areas on soil dif ferent from that at the Yanco Experi ment Farm.

Present Work. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

Present Work. Much land has been .put under wheat and oat crops during the past month, but a considerable area of land yet remains to be sown. As the^watering season will shortly terminate, it is to be hoped set tlers will make every endeavor to plant their wheat and oat crops as soon as pos sible. In sowing cereal; crops, many settlers have experienced trouble' during the pre sent extremely dry weather in retaining sufficient moisture in the land for the proper germination of their seed. On certain soil moisture can be absorbed and held with very little difficulty. On other stiffer soils the moisture seems to hang so long on the surface, preventing agri cultural work being carried out that when it is possible to get horses on the land and the sowing is completed, it is found that the soil is really too dry for success ful germination, and it has been proved in every instance that it is most detrimental to the crop to attempt to apply water to any paddock after same has been sown an...
