Cow Bails and Milking Yards. (Continued from March 15 Issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

Cow Bails and Milking Y ards. (Continued from March 15 Issue.) At the suggestion of the Board of Health authorities, the following informa tion is given on general points connected with the erection of type pig sties and cow bails. It is perhaps unnecessary to point out that in making these additional suggestions, the Board is not actuated in any sense by feelings antagonistic to the Area and its dairymen. On the other hand, it can truthfully be said that the relations between the Board's officers and those of the Commissioner and settlers are of the most cordial nature. Like other visitors to the Areas, the Board of Health inspectors recognise the tremen dous possibilities of the dairying indus try there, and the very fine beginning that, settlers have already made. The suggestions now printed are made purely for the instruction of settlers, and with a view to making the carrying out of the Board's regulations a matter of greater ease than it might otherwise be. 1.

Hollow Trees. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

Hollow Trees. ,f In all probability settlers have seen in cipient cracks developing on the butts of limbs which have been removed" in pruning, but they have probably not taken any particular interest in the mat ter. No doubt also, they have noticed trees which have, been injured by the knocking off of pieces of the bark with out unduly worrying over the event. As a matter of fact cracks in limbs are per haps the most common cause of trees be coming hollow. The matter of giving proper attention to such cracks or abra sions is a very important one, as will be admitted when it is remembered that a hollow limb is much more likely to break under a heavy crop of fruit than a sound one, and that such breakages are common in orchards, the trees of which are affect ed with hollow limbs. Moreover, a hollow limb/must necessarily be deficient >as £ carrier of nourishment to the fruit, since a hollow limb is a diseased limb. Causes of Wood Decaying.-Professor \V. T. Home, of the University of...

Viticulture on the Areas, and The War. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

Viticulture on the Areas, and The War. . In, compliance with a request, Mr. Blunno has been good enough to forward through the Department of Agriculture his views on how the war is likely to affect the future of the Areas from a viti cultural point of view: The European war will affect for a time the output of French wines, but not permanently, owing to the great recuper ative power of the French people. After the Franco-German War in 1870, the French nation quickly recovered, under took and accomplished the reconstruction of the whole of the vineyard area! on phylloxera resistant stocks. The effect of the war on the Australian viticultural industry will be the same as that on various industries in any part of the British Empire, whether they are es tablished industries or only potential. It is not unlikely that the British commer cial ^policy will undergo a change, and it may be that, if not the whole, at least portion of the late Mr.. Joseph Chamber lain's advocated policy will ma...

The Peaches to Grow. [In the following article Mr. W. D. Brooks continues his remarks on the peaches which he considers it would pay settlers to grow, his subject this time being the virtues of the "Salway." As pointed out in previous issues, the opinions are quite unofficial, and solely those of Mr. Brooks, but they are instructive and valuable, being those of a man with a thorough knowledge of orcharding and of the Areas as well. As far as the cold storage question is concerned, it is worth noting that at Mildura at present the question is a very burning one, a great deal of public attention being given to it. Reference to the action in progress on the Victorian settlement will be made in the next issue. As far as the canning question is concerned, it is well to bear in mind that it was never for one moment thought by anyone that the cannery established by the Commissioner would meet the requirements of the Areas for any great length of time. What the future holds in store in the direction of additional canneries it is too early to say yet.—Ed.] [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

Some Departmental Experiments, ? ;A ;pertisal of the records of the Depart ment of Agriculture has resulted in the following ^information being obtained as to the results which have been achieved with regard to the export of the fruits in 1which growers on the Areas are parti cularly interested: Grapes to Vancouver, 1909-10-This shipment apparently arrived in rather un satisfactory condition. No account sales were rendered, the best of the berries be jng distributed as samples among San Francisco buyers. Grapes, London, 1910.-The shipment did not arrive in good condition. The Agent-Generai reported that the bloom had disappeared; about 10 per cent, of the berries were black or squashed, and all were wet. The sound grapes, al though palatable and sweet, were un marketable, and the boxes appeared to have been damaged by pressing. He further stated that grapes, to bring good prices, must be landed in London before June. , Grapes to Vancouver, 1910.-Sample shipment of two boxes (Darias)...

RED OIL FOR CITRUS TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

RED OIL FOR CITRCJS TREES. Fed oil has long been recognised as a good spray for deciduous trees in the winter, but not for citrus t'ees during the summer. A South Australian expert, however, is of opinion that this emulsion can be used with advantage on citrus trees in the summer time if spraying be done on a warm drying day while there is plenty of growth in the tree. Previously it has been considered that a cloudy day was most suitable for the purpose. It is maintained that on a hot day the oil films readily, and does not run down the stems to the butt of the leaves. It is this fact which in the past has, it is said, caused the softening of the leaf stem and the consequent tendency of thie leaf to fall.

DUST! [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

DUST! . .-?'F'&MbX-iit'.r-' _ The present season has been one of the dustiest on record in RTverina owing to the intensely dry conditions which have prevailed inland. The Irrigation Areas have, however, benefited more from the deposition of dust than they have lost The tremendous translocation of soil which goes on in such a; year as the pre sent is recognised by very few outside scientific circles. Recently some investi gations were" made in connection with the dust-storms of the Northern Sahara. It was estimated that an amount of 1,800, 000 tons of dust was deposited over Europe from this source during one sea son; as much more was believed to have fallen into the Mediterranean ; and on the Affibarii coast itself the. deposit was sup-; posed to have amounted to 150,000,000/ tons. The extreme distance to which the dust^was carried from its place of origin exceeded 2500 miles. Can we come near those records?

SELECTION OF MAIZE SEED. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

SELECTION OF MAIZE SEED. From time to time reference has beein made through these columns to the bene fit which may be <expecteid to accrue from thevproper selection of seed. The maize . crop will be one of the most important of mixed farming crops on the Areas, and in America during recent years the matter of seed selection has beien made a special study. It has been found advantageous to select the corn carefully in the field, the ears being chosen before the corn is cut, and the sta'.ks marked. These ears can be given special treatment if they re quire it. Maybe the individual stalks will require a day or two longer to mature than the main body of the crop. It has been found as important to watch the stalk as much as the eiar,< and ears should be selected that are growing on stalks of uniform ripeness, as the chances of a uniform ripening crop next year are thereby greatly increased. Ears growing low on the stalk are likely to be early matured, while those g...

The Atmosphere. ITS IMPORTANCE TO AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1915

f THe Atmosphere. ITS IMPORTANCE TO AGRICULTURE. By H. J. Braund. jj In previous issues of the "Record," the Itpart which the atmosphere plays in the formation of soil from the crude parent rock has been dealt with. It has Deen jclearly shown that the air in which we live is of paramount importance in disin tegrating, and weathering into fertile soil, the various rocks from which all soils are primarily derived. My experience among men on the land has been that the vast majority nesver give the atmosphere a second thought in re spect to its bearing on soil formation, bac terial activity and plant growth. If it were not for the fact that the composition of the air is practically the same all the world over, while the composition of soil* varies* almost every foot, men would have to use'-more time in the selection of the atmosphere with which their farm is sur rounded than they wouM in the selection of the soil. The great boon of this uniform composi tion of the atmosphere is, however...
