SOWING DOWN PASTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914

SOWING DOWtN PASTURE. The majority of failures in sowing down pastures is attributable to putting in .too deep on a badly prepS.red seed bed. The ground should be prepared as for wheat or oats, but repeatedly harrowed, or rolled and harrowed until a \very fine seed bed has been secured; firm below and loose on the surface. Preliminary cultivation for the purpose of causing weed seed to germinate and then killing 'it by harrowing is speci ally desirable, as it is difficult to remove weeds from amongst the sown grasses f.ftar wards. The seed is best sown broadcast in two directions, so as to ensure uniform distri 'bution, and sowingS.hlould be avoided on a windy day. The seed must only be lightly covered, not deeply 'buried, and to do this a chain or light zig-zag harrow may be used. It is an advantage to roll the ground to render it firm and compact round the sprouting 6eed. Mixtures of grasses may be sown at the rate:-of 30 to 40 lb. of seed per acre-more where the seed is large or,...

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN BORDER. Mount Gambier. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN' BORDER. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] - MIount Gambler. The local potato market has opened this year at £2.15/ per ton. This is much be low the openihng price of last year. The barley crops in the Millicent district are turning out much better than was ex pected, the average being35 bushels. WVheat is yielding from 25 to 30 bushels. A strike has been in operation at Port Macdonnell for the past seven weeks. A number of men are engaged in loading and unloading the vessels. Recently some union agents went to the bay; and persuaded the men that they were receiving altogether too .little for their work. The result was:that they struck for a special scale of .riates. The agents say they cannot carry on the business and pay the full log rate,- and have been negotiating with the men, but so far 'without result. -For the last fortnight the steamers have been going to :Beachport to discharge and load, and the Port Maedon. nell trade has been suspended.

WASHAWAYS IN LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914

WASHAWAYS IN LAND. Referring to recent illustrations on this subject in "The Leader," a correspondent wvrites:---"Having uncultivated land above that which is cultivated ~without drains to carry away the surplus water, we tried to get the land as level as possible for the machinery at harvest time; that is to say: ploughing it in two or three chain lands and working the furrows all in. Working the land with scarifier or cultivator only was a bad plan, as it cut it into dust, and when it was full of wvater it easily wasted away. A good many work their land at tihe bottom of the paddock, and this as anot:her mistake. There are paddocks to be seen that have been worked in this way, and they were washed about badly. HIar rowing the land unp and down a slope with heavy harrows, leaving big marks for'the Wrater to follow, is not a good practice. To prevent this washing of land it is neces sary mn the first place to have a drain large enough along the top of paddock to take away all flood ...

DAIRY. THE DEAN DISTRICT. CHANGING METHODS OF AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914

S• THE DEAN DISTRIC1. .ICHANGING METHODS OF - . AGRICULTURE. IBY' OUR AGRICULTURAL nREPORTER.] The niiin road which connects Ballarat with Dean and N'ewlyn, climbs over the main dividing range," which at this point reaches what may .be termed its western extremity. From here on towards Beau fort the distinct range which eitends to the east loses its individuality. Its place is taken by undulating land and plains. The existence of the range has a marked influ ence on the rainfall.. At Ballarat the an nual precipitation averages about 27 inches, while a few miles north, .at Kirk's and Beale's reserVoirs, . the average mounts up to 35 and 36 inches. Altitude has clear ]y conferred a great gain in rainfall and has therefore enhanced the value of, the rich volcanic landa obtaining in the Dean and Newlyn districts. Lands of similar type, situated a few miles to the west, have by no means such a substantial precipita tion, and this fact has led to values being on an appreciably lower scale...

THE WESTERN PLAINS. Berry Bank. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914

THE WESTERN PLAINS, [FROM OUR CO.RRESPONDENT.1 Berry Bank. When sowing rape, lucerne and - other small seeds with a drill it is found that a great quantity of the seed is sown too deep, and it never comes up: The best Te sults have been• obtained by sowing on the surface after the ground has been well harrowed after ploughing, and ~ hen. a brush harrows dragged over-it. The re turns from the various, farms are now so far advanced that a payable average return is assured. The wheat will average 18 to 20 bushels, fallow ground going 24 bushels to about 10 bushels off unfallowed. The greater portion of the land. was fallowed in August and September, and in previous years this always gave the best return, but this year nearly every crop that gave 30 or more bushels per acre was ploughed after November, and some of the best were not fallowed till March and sown in IMay. The farmers are puzzled at this and hardly know what to do. Of course,.this does not refer to virgin land. In some ease...

TILLAGE APD PATUR FROM SWAMP TO MEADOW. RECLAMATION WORK AT HEDLEY. tBY OUR AGRICULTURAL REPORTER.] tmithin the last twenty years extensive, reclamation works have been privately carried out in those lowv-ying portions of South Gippsland situated between Welsh pool and Port Albert. As a result 2300 acres of land that was either impenetrable srwamp or mud flat, periodically covered with tide waters, have been cohverted into fertile meadows. In addition, another 400 acres of mud flats have been embanked and partially reclaimed. In another year or two it will be sufficiently free from salt to justify the cltaring of the scrub and the laying of thr rich soil down in grass. There are also 400 acres of first class land p artially drained and well grassed, but not so co~mlctely reclaimed as the areas al ready referregd to. Some of the higher lands between the swamps have also been treated, 300 acres having been grubbed and cultivated. Nearer to. the railway line attention has been paid to ...
